Variscite slab Natural rough from Lucin, Utah for cabbing, cabachons, jewelry making, crafting, specimen collecting
Variscite is a relatively rare hydrated aluminum phosphate mineral known for its rich green colors reminiscent of turquoise.
~ As a semi-precious stone, it is popular in jewelry making and carving. Variscite is a soft stone, easy to cut and work with.
~ This particular slab comes from the Lucin, Utah source of variscite, known for its soft, rich green and occasional grey/white banding.
~ I tried to wet the slab to show its final polished color, but the sun tried it too fast, which you may notice in the photo, where the edges dried faster than the middle. These will take a polish that reveals a lively green color across the piece.
~ Metaphysically, variscite is said to encourage a wakeful attitude, a lifting of the spirits, and an encouragement of truthfulness.
This piece measures: 3.5” x 1.75” x .3”

*** About Grove of Stones***
Grove of Stones exists to connect beautiful stones and minerals with those who wish to experience the wonderful qualities that these stones radiate. Tanya Pluth, founder of Grove of Stones, grew up looking for agates on county gravel roads in Minnesota, and watching relatives make jewelry with precious stones. Tanya learned to select and work with stones from a shaman who paired stones as tools for healing, ceremony, and sacred purposes. Tanya is gifted in pairing people with stones. At a recent expo, a colleague gave Tanya the nickname "The Stone Shepherd" because of her ability to find incredible stones and deliver them to people who seek high-quality crystals and minerals. Tanya travels extensively to locate the most "alive" stones to share with others. She mines some of her own material. And where she can't mine, she purchases, whenever possible, directly from the miners themselves, and as a result is able to ensure proper treatment of the stones along their journeys. She often "rehabs" stones that experienced shock when coming out into the air. If you are looking for a particular stone, be sure to ask Tanya! She'd love to hear what you are looking for and find just the right stone for you.
