Varisite

  • Varisite is a hydrated aluminium phosphate mineral. It is often confused with turquoise and is almost always a beautiful shade of green. It can often be several shades of green in the same stone.

  • Many people try to sell it as turquoise, or variquoise, a supposed combination of Varisite and Turquoise. Most of this stone comes from Nevada and most dealers acknowledge that "variquoise or spiderwebbed variquoise is really just beautiful variscite.

  • Remember, the difference. Turquoise is a copper mineral; varisite is an alluminium phosphate mineral.

  • Some of the most beautiful Varisite around comes from Snowville, along with the material that comes from the Peacock and New Lander mines.
