Description / Comments: The Damele Mine is a very low producing mine, that in its self makes any production collectible. The Damele Mine long viewed as turquoise, Damele may be referred to by various persons as variscite or faustite or even chalcosiderite. All are related phosphate minerals with similar cutting characteristics and without submitting each individual example for a proper scientific analysis, the differences are not possible to determine visually.
Please request more pics if you need to, I am by no way a good photographer, I don't alter the pics in anyway, and try to put a coin in for a color/size reference.
I am new to Etsy and will be listing some of the unique stones I have come in contact with over the years. If you need a replacement stone cut, feel free to contact me.
