What is Gaspeite?

Gaspeite is a relatively new and rare gemstone, having only been discovered in 1977 on the Gaspé Peninsula of Quebec, Canada, the place after which it is named. Its color ranges from muted green to vivid apple-green and it often has brownish matrix. Darker shades can resemble green turquoise. Most gaspiete today comes from New Mexico and from Western Australia. Gaspeite is thought to be a strong healing stone and one that can benefit those wishing to lose weight. It is also said to have spiritual powers that can enhance communication with other worlds.

ABOUT OPAL

Opal is a naturally blue stone with interior fracturing of light which results in a play of color. Opal is October's birthstone and is believed to make the wearer less self-conscious, thereby encouraging spontaneous action and awakening one's psyche.

Natural opal

(also known as precious opal) contains between 3-10% water but can be as high as 20% and this can make the stones less stable.

Lab opal

is considered a true synthetic or created opal produced in controlled laboratory conditions and with the same chemical composition as natural opal but with a very low moisture content making it more durable. Lab opal has much fracturing of light and brilliant colors including blue, pink, purple, red and green..

Imitation opal

(artificial or simulated opal) is different chemically from natural and lab opal. It is made up of 80% silica and 20% resin and is an economical option to both precious and lab opal. It is the opal most commonly used in Native American jewelry.
