Variscite Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Variscite

Know where your crystals come from

This Variscite comes from an artisanal or small-scale mine in Utah, USA. The exact mine is unknown, but it have a low environmental impact and be relatively low risk for miners.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Variscite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published September 2016  •  Updated July 2022  •  Read Time: 5 minutes
Variscite is a sweet phosphate mineral closely related to Turquoise.  It is typically mined on a small-scale, often using hand-tools.  Today, many of the most beautiful specimens come from Utah, USA.  But this stone was first found in the border area between Germany and the Czech Republic, a region that was historically known as Variscia.  Variscite is a stone of hope and encouragement.  It invites us to step into our most authentic self and let our light shine.  It is a wonderful stone for clearing up emotional confusion and seeing straight to the heart.  Varscite is recommended for anyone going to therapy or actively engaged in personal work.

    Thank you for choosing me such an endearingly shaped, beautifully colored, big, Variscite! Its calm, peaceful, open, loving energy has just carried me through an all-day fundraising event with unruffled ease and perhaps attracted the people who approached me for genuinely good conversations about our aims in common. To hold and look at it’s got a whole lot of personality. I do love its gorgeous mingling of soft Nile green tones with darker green tones and spots of white matrix.
