Variscite- pure gem nodule
Utahlite Hill, Lucin, Lucin Sistrict, Pilot Range, Box Elder County
11.4 x 8.5 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
A big polished half nodule of very choice gem grade Variscite with top grade color. Some patterns showing faintly but overall a strong and even color. 328 grams nearly all gem grade with just a thin skin on the exterior, super rich. This is an old piece from the less well known Utahlite Hill that had a more pure Variscite than the better known Clay Canyon locale.
Variscite with Wardite crystals etc.
Little Green Monster Mine, Clay Canyon, Fairfield
5.8 x 4 x 2.5 CM (cabinet)
pre Tucson 2015 update
An unpolished Variscite etc. nodule showing many of the associated species (Crandellite etc) and having a fine vug of blue green Wardite in distinct crystals. Often Wardite from the Fairfield area is white or grey, this is a much more attractive color and the crystals are very sharp, clear and much better than typical.
