Variscite With Crandalite And Wardite
Large Cabinet, 21.0 x 13.4 x 0.5 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 8 inches long, the size of this slice places it among the larger specimens out there, certainly the largest one I have personally seen for sale. Note that this is, as most such specimens are after being sliced out of a boulder, polished. Priced based on the variscite content, as they generally are.
