Variscite from Nevada typically contains black spiderwebbing in the matrix and is often confused with green turquoise. Most of the Nevada variscite recovered in recent decades has come from mines located in Lander County
Notable localities are Lucin, Utah and Fairfield,Utah in the United States. Most recently found in Wyoming as well. It is also found in Germany, Australia, Poland, Spain and Brazil.
Variscite is sometimes used as a semi-precious stone, and is popular for carvings and ornamental use due to its beautiful and intense green color, and is commonly used in silversmithing. Variscite is more rare and less common than Turquoise, but because it is not as commonly available as turquoise or as well known to the general public, raw variscite tends to be less expensive than turquoise.
