The most unusual feature of the variscite is its association with gold. Gold is unevenly distributed in the variscite specimens, and ranges from discrete fine grains to visible concentrations in the variscite. There are also larger single grains in the rock matrix. Assays of up to 17 g/t Au have been returned from some samples. Woodlands Station Variscite was discovered in 2003 in Australia and has produced some of the most vibrant green variscite we’ve ever seen. As of 2020, mine owner Glenn Archer has told us that is is mostly depleted.
