I don’t know, but that is a beautiful stone. Love the cloud of brown. Actually looks more like jade.
I think we sometimes get wrapped up with semantics, as my guess is 100 years ago we certainly didn’t differentiate between variscite and turquoise. I am sure native Americans and other indigenous tribes of long ago cared even less as long as it was blue or green and hard.
The reason I bring this up in this way is perhaps the elders called in “turquoise” but it may be more of a variscite?
This also looks very similar to wintergreen turquoise, but I believe that mine is in Nevada.
Either way, call it what you will, I would happily add this to my collection
