I don’t post very often, but I do like to read each and every
posting. Tons of for us wanna be silversmiths.
I read the archives concerning the price of variquoise rough, but
most of the responses were more geared to weather or not the
snowville variquoise was really variquoise. I have an opportunity to
purchase about 50 lbs of this material (love to work with it) and am
wondering if anyone on this list has any idea of what it might be
Whether ot not the experts believe this is only variscite does not
concern me. I have worked the material for a number of years (just
haven’t put any cabochons in jewelry) and prefer it over turquoise.
As far as I am concerned, it has more character and variation. I
recently purchased one piece that I am particularly fond of. I would
be happy to e-mail a photo of this slab if anyone is interested.
Any you share is greatly appreciated.
