◊ 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.

◊ The word diamond comes from the ancient Greek adámas, meaning unbreakable. Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperatures and pressure in the Earth's mantle. Carbon-containing minerals provide the carbon source, and the growth occurs over periods from 1 billion to over 3 billion years. Diamonds are brought close to the Earth's surface through deep volcanic eruptions by magma, which cools into igneous rocks.
