Variscite was first discovered in 1837 in the Vogtland district of Germany. It was named after the historical name of the district, Variscia. Variscite is a rare hydrated aluminum phosphate mineral. Variscite is found in the USA in Utah, Nevada and Wyoming. It is also found in Australia, Brazil, Germany, Poland, and Spain. Variscite specimens of exceptional color are typically made into jewelry and are highly collectible for gemstone collectors.
Variscite is extremely powerful for activating the Heart Chakra and helping you work through traumas, regrets and emotional wounds. Variscite encourages you to love yourself as you are. It promotes hope and optimism for your bright future, while reminding you to be grateful for the now. Variscite is a money magnet that opens up new opportunities for abundance to flow into your life. I often recommend Variscite to clients who need help opening their heart to love again.
Care: Avoid prolonged exposure to heat (or extreme heat), direct sunlight and contact with water, abrasive surfaces or chemicals. Remove before contact sports, weight lifting or activities where it may come into contact with force. As always, minerals higher on the hardness scale should be stored away from Variscite. Variscite is on the softer side of the MOHs scale so it should be worn and stored with care.
Feng Shui Placement: Family and health space, love and relationships corner your kitchen or living room.

Use + Crystal pairings
Variscite is a stone of harmony, compassion, joy, love and peace. Wearing Variscite will help you work through any stress that may arise in your day. It will help keep you calm and peaceful. Variscite is also amazing to wear or keep in your kitchen to support a healthy diet.
Blue Apatite + Variscite
This pairing is particularly supportive of a healthy diet and can be worn for an additional boost. I also recommend keeping this pairing in the kitchen and to set up a crystal grid.
Chrysocolla + Variscite
I love this pairing to help support those who are struggling to find empowerment. Chrysocolla is like that friendly nudge from your best friend, your Higher Self, guiding you to do what you know in your heart you need to do. It's also really amazing for anyone who is afraid to follow a spiritual path. It helps guide us when we are lost and reminds us that when we follow our heart to love we can do anything.
Chrysoprase + Variscite
This is a good combination to work with when working through some very deep, repressed emotional wounds or healing work on the inner child. I do also recommend holding a grounding crystal like Black Tourmaline during this kind of healing.
