Gemstone: Variscite (Scrimshaw)
The variscite from Ivory Creek is known for its calming hues from soft white to pale green. Akin to turquoise due to its unusual striations and matrices, Hannah Blount Jewelry loves variscite for its subtle beauty that serves as the perfect canvas for the Scrimshaw collection while being striking enough to stand alone.
MOHs Hardness: 3.5-4.5
Origins: Ivory Creek mine in Kazakhstan
Care: Avoid dropping your variscite jewelry onto hard surfaces and keep away from chemicals: contact with cosmetics, oils, acids, etc. can damage variscite. To clean your variscite jewelry, use warm, soapy water and remove any dirt with a toothbrush or the like gently. Do not use an ultrasonic or steam cleaner.
Healing Properties: Inner peace, compassion, clarity, and emotional healing.
