QUALITY ROUGH
VARASITE

This is a natural thick slab of varasite ready for polishing or carving.
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.
