For sale is a specimen of gemmy, bright pretty red variscite crystals which are richly scattered on the iron oxide gossan matrix. This classic, rare and showy material from this well-known locale, was found only for a short time in the mid 1990s., actually in November 1994, this piece! To my knowledge red variscite has only been found at one other world location, in Brazil. To see one for sale today is not too common. These are undoubtedly Australia’s most famous varicites.
