I have a client who’s fallen in love with gaspetite and wants to use
it in her engagement ring which will also double as a wedding ring.
Thing is, gaspetite is only 4.5 on the mohs scale, as is variscite,
which I feel is a bit soft for something that is going to be worn all
day, every day, though I’m open to correction from those far more
knowledgeable than myself!
Here in the West of Australia we’ve got a huge range of stones,
including chrysoprase which is 6 -7 Mohs, which should be hard
Can any Orchid Lapidary people suggest any other alternative that’s
an equally gorgeous green?
