Firefly Mine Variscite
The Firefly Mine is located in Esmeralda County, Nevada near the Candelaria Mining District. This area is famous for its silver and turquoise. Originally mined for turquoise long ago, this mine was worked very little and then sat abandoned until we recently re-discovered it. When we started working here, we found lovely turquoise and also discovered this amazing vein of variscite with its unique minty greens, yellows, and red webbing. In rare stones there will actually be spots of turquoise inclusions within the variscite! If I show a stone here that has this going on, I will be sure to point it out in the description.
