Variscite Rock Slab 0205

  • 6495

Variscite is a relatively rare aluminum phosphate mineral closely related to turquoise in its chemical composition.  This material from Utah is noted for its glowing green color, varying in intensity from a light, mint green to a vibrant Kelly green often "webbed" in a gray matrix.  Although softer than agate or jasper (somewhere around 5 on the Moh's scale) it takes a great polish and makes wonderful, finished pieces.

Origin:  Utah

Dimensions:  4.5" x 2.5" and is approximately 6.8 mm thick.  Weight = 106 grams. 

Shown wet.  Not polished.  Flaws are shown as white line in the final picture frame.
