Lucin Variscite Ripple Pendant
Description : This light weight pendant highlights this gorgeous natural green Variscite stone that has some variation in color - the thin rings around the stone remind me of rings of a tree trunk or the ripple when you throw a stone into the water. It's simple and elegant and perfectly showcases this stone!
Lucin Variscite (normally called Utah Variscite) is probably the most recognized Variscite in the world. It comes from a hill near Lucin (also known as Umbria Junction) which is an abandoned railroad community in Box Elder County, Utah, United States, along the western side of the Great Salt Lake, 162 miles (261 km) northwest of Salt Lake City. This deposit is owned by Union Pacific Railroad and is currently not being mined. Rockhounds have collected high grade specimens from this mine for decades. Collecting is no longer allowed in this area, making old time collections very valuable.
Variscite is one of the most sought after minerals in the entire mineral collecting world. Variscite is a hydrated aluminum phosphate mineral. It is a relatively rare phosphate mineral that is formed by phosphate rich water deposits that react with aluminum rich rocks in a near-surface environment.
