20 pieces of Fairfield variscite. #31 weighs 158g. Beautiful deep mint green stones. Some of the variscite is coated with yellow and black phosphates; the yellow material may be pseudowavellite. Fairfield was an area that produced many fine examples of variscite cherished by collectors. This is what is commonly know as Fairfield Varascite. This mine was open in the 50s and is said to be closed and no longer contain Varascite. The Utah variscite that came from this mine was extremely rare and had inclusions of Crandelite, Wardite and other rare minerals. A lot of this material was sold as specimens as it was too beautiful with all the other minerals in it to cut it up. State: Utah City: Fairfield Date: HWAC# 61515
