Gaspéite is a nickel carbonate mineral from the Calcite group, seen in green, apple-green, or yellow-green shades with brown or yellow mottling. The crystal is mostly opaque with a glassy luster and uneven fractures. 

Did you know Gaspéite was discovered around 50 years ago? Before then, it was a powerful crystal among Native American reservations. It was called Allura at the 1994 Tucson Gem Show and was misidentified as a Chrysoprase before that. 

The iconic yellow-green color of Allura owes it to nickel. Sulfide minerals like Violarite, Nickeline, Millerite, and Pentlandite convert into Gaspéite. This crystal represents the nickel-based Calcite varieties. 

Fun Fact: Did you know the presence of Gaspéite is used as a mining indicator for nickel-based ore?
