Variscite With Crandalite And Wardite
Large Cabinet, 17.5 x 13.3 x 1.1 cm
Clay Canyon, Fairfield, Salt Lake County, Utah, USA
Ex. Rice Northwest Museum
A beautiful specimen of chrysoprase-colored, turquoise-blue variscite, rimmed by and included by streaks of canary-yellow crandallite. There is some gray Wardite present is well. This is a rare association, and the contrast is striking. At 7 inches long, the size of this slice places it among the larger specimens out there, certainly among the largest ones that I have personally seen for sale. Note that this is, as most such specimens are after being sliced out of a boulder, polished.
