Similar to turquoise, but green in color, Variscite (sometimes misspelled as "varisite") has been found in Germany, the Western United States, Australia, and Brazil and is a somewhat rare mineral of the phosphate class that gets its green color from the presence of chromium. Also like turquoise, it is generally found in nodules covered with a light crust. The name is derived from Variscia, which is the historical name of Vogtland in Germany.
