Product Description

For sale is a nice solid piece of gaspeite from West Aust. Gaspeite is a rare nickel, magnesium, iron carbonate, found in only a handful of places in the world. This rich and fine, two-sided specimen features striking,  apple-green gaspeite. Typically gaspeite is only seen in polished cabochons on the gem market, (and the vast majority of these have been treated to make the material stable)  and actual specimens are few and far between. This specimen could , I think be cut into a fine cab. I have been thinking if it does not sell  reasonably quickly, I may evern do it myself. Great, solid stable material with fine fine color.
