Gaspeite is a rare mineral associated with nickle sulphide. It was named when discovered in the Gaspe’ Peninsula of Atlantic Canada. It has since been found in a few other locations where nickle mines exist, including Western Australia. When we acquired this jewelry in New Mexico, gaspeite was attributed by the artist as being sourced in Brazil. Subsequent investigation has not turned up evidence of any Gaspeite deposits in Brazil that we know of.
