Gaspeite properties

gaspeite, history and healing properties

Named after the region where it was discovered by mineralogists Kohls and Rodda in 1966, on the Gaspé Peninsula in Canada, gaspeite is a rare treasure of the mineral kingdom.

This unique mineral, belonging to the calcite group, is a mixture of iron carbonate and nickel. Once considered a negligible byproduct of nickel extraction, gaspeite has revealed its stunning beauty and priceless value.

Its hues, ranging from earthy green to brown, and from pale green to bright apple green, accented with brownish veins, make it a stone with a diverse and captivating color palette.

Stories, legends and beliefs about gaspeite

Gaspéite stands out among semi-precious stones due to its relatively recent discovery. Hence, it has a relatively short and less well-known history, with few facts that can be reported.

Though its past is still being uncovered, references suggest that Australian Aboriginals attributed sacred significance to gaspéite. They regarded it as a medicinal stone, used for detecting sources of illness, and as a talisman promoting luck and well-being.
