QUALITY ROUGH

VARASITE

This is a natural thick slab of varasite ready for polishing or carving.It was mined in west Australia

We have taken a picture of the rough wet.

Variscite is a hydrated aluminium phosphate.

This rough is from a new variscite discovery in 2003 in west australia . This new deposit is producing an exciting range of colours ranging from delicate lime greens to darker, gemmy material close to the colour of top grade chrysoprase through to a deep, translucent emerald green.

The most unusual feature of the variscite is its association with gold. Gold is unevenly distributed in the variscite specimens, and ranges from discrete fine grains to visible concentrations in the variscite . There are also larger single grains in the rock matrix. Assays of up to 17 g/t Au have been returned from some samples

Much of the newly mined stone is also webbed….an added bonus as “spiderweb variscite” is a highly sought after material for cutting cabochons.
