Vintage Utah Variscite Trillion Bangle | 14k Gold Fill

Vintage Utah Variscite Trillion Bangle | 14k Gold Fill


◊ This stunning piece of vintage Utah varisicte dates back to the 1970s and has been cut by an American lapidary artist into these trillion pieces. Each piece of variscite is entirely unique.

◊ Variscite is bezel set in 14k gold fill with a sturdy hammered gold fill band. Variscite measures 20 x 21 mm and is 6 mm thick, bangle is 5.5 inches in circumference and fits most wrists. 

◊ 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, while other metals such as iron and manganese can contribute to its other colors.

◊ Because of their unique composition, each locality where turquoise and variscite are found imparts its own character into the stone. Each stone will be one of a kind.
