Gaspeite Chunk and Gaspeite Swirl Necklaces by Szarka
These are created from rare and collectable Gaspeite.
Gaspeite is an extremely rare pale to apple green mineral usually found near deposits of nickel sulfide.
Originally discovered in Canada, gaspeite has more recently been found in Australia although that is now largely picked over; thus, its rarity. Gaspeite has also been found in Tasmania.
Gaspeite has been known to be used for healing problems with the heart, lungs and gallbladder. It is also said to help reduce distress, bring assurance, reduce ignorance and attract friendship.
