◊ We are in love with the unique patterns in this teardrop shaped variscite stone. It is bezel set in sterling silver and accented with three moissanites bezel set in 14k recycled yellow gold. It's the perfect unique statement ring, and because of it's mixed metal colors, it looks great worn with both gold and silver jewelry. 

◊ Variscite measures approximately 18 x 13 mm. Moissanites measure 2 mm. 

◊ Because this ring is one of a kind, it is ready to ship in size 8. It cannot be sized.

◊ This variscite was mined and cut by a husband and wife from the Prince Mine in Mineral County, Nevada near the Calendaria Mining district. The variscite from these particular mines have high silica content, which makes them hardness and extra durability.

◊ Variscite is a mineral closely related to turquoise in mineralogical terms; a hydrous aluminum phosphate, with its distinct difference being that it doesn't contain copper. While copper gives turquoise its characteristically blue color, variscite receives its green colors from chromium and vanadium. Other metals such as iron and manganese can contribute to its other colors.

◊ Because of its unique composition, each locality where variscite is found imparts its own character on the stone. Each provenance also has its own individual history that is carried forward with the stone.

◊ Moissanite was first discovered by French chemist Henri Moissan in 1893 in a meteor crater in Arizona. Due to its scarcity, it is now a lab created gem by Charles & Colvard.
