Variscite from the Athena Mine in Nevada, set in heavy-duty 18-gauge (.925) Sterling silver. This stone has a spiderweb pattern of milky whites and black color compliments. The band & setting are handcrafted from sterling silver. The ring band has a beautiful texture and hand stamped details, with a patina added to give the ring a vintage look. This ring was hand hand cut, shaped, and constructed, making it a truly one of a kind piece. It would make a great statement piece, but simple enough for everyday wear.

Ring size: 7.5

Variscite is a mineral closely related to turquoise, with its distinct difference being that it doesn't contain copper. While copper gives turquoise its characteristically blue color, variscite receives its green colors from chromium and vanadium, while other metals such as iron and manganese can contribute to its other colors. This variscite formed in ancient seafloor shale in the area that is now known as the Athena Mine in Esmeralda County, Nevada.

This ring was hand cut, forged, and polished by me in my workshop. This is a one of a kind piece of handcrafted Athena Variscite and Sterling silver jewelry. Made in the U.S.A.

All jewelry comes packaged in a beautiful gift box tied with a piece of natural twine.
The jewelry you are purchasing is made to last, but like all handmade items, it is delicate. Care is necessary and the responsibility of the wearer. Always remove your jewelry before sleeping, swimming, or bathing. Keep jewelry clean and free of chemicals (this includes oils, lotions, soaps, etc.). Please remove your jewelry before any type of heavy activity such as gardening, or exercising. You may clean your jewelry with gentle soap and water, but never use chemicals or other types of cleaners (this can destroy natural stones and remove patina on the piece). Polishing cloths are great for removing unwanted oxidization (be careful to not rub too hard or you may remove the patina). Patina is a natural process and will always occur on silver
I do not accept returns. Please shop seriously.
