Variscite is a relatively rare phosphate mineral. It is often found in similar locations to turquoise and, because it is similar in appearance, is often mistaken for such; however, variscite is typically greener in color. Because of its structural and visual similarity, it is considered a cousin to turquoise. Variscite colors can range from yellow to brown, aqua, green-blue and deep green…and even white. Measures 29x18mm.
