Description
~ Variscite cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of spiderwebbed variscite, from Australia. This is an example of material from the relatively recent find, about 100 miles from the previous source. Rather pricey per pound but worth it, I think. It features cool pastel greens that remind me of pistachio ice cream (my favorite), with deeper minty green areas. It's a good deal prettier in hand than these photos depict, with more saturated green color. There's also some nicely contrasting tan to brown spiderwebbing, adding to the stone's character and value. The cab has a low rounded dome, a crisp designer 'spearhead' shape, and a surprisingly nice polish both front and back.

Size: 49x23mm
Weight: approximately 43 carats
