◊ Variscite is a mineral closely related to turquoise in mineralogical terms; a hydrous aluminum phosphate, 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. Other metals such as iron and manganese can contribute to its other colors.
