CAN I HAVE A RING RESIZED?
Sterling Silver Variscite Ring
#BBR680 - $50
Paula says - "When we buy estate or personal jewelry lots, we often receive rings that are Native American style but not necessarily Native American made and they may or may not be sterling silver. Here is one of those rings, a sterling silver ring with variscite stone made by Quoc Turquoise, Inc. of Albuquerque, New Mexico. It is a nice ring but likely not Native American made."

Variscite is a relatively rare phosphate mineral (hydrated aluminum phosphate) that is sometimes confused with turquoise, however variscite is greener in color and is usually rich with matrix.
