Gemstone information:
Variscite has also been called "Aqua Terra Jasper", "Sea Sediment Jasper" and some other picturesque names like that, but Jasper it ain't. Jasper is a microcrystalline variety of Quartz with a hardness of 6.5-7 on Mohs scale, while Variscite is hydrated aluminium phosphate with a hardness of around 4 (so it is best to keep it separately to avoid scratching or chipping by harder pieces of jewelry).
