Lime-Green Gaspeite Square Pillow Rhombus Beads
Price is per 16-inch string of these beautiful beads - about 18 beads in all - drilled as in picture. Each measures 17mm x 6mm. Made from reconstituted gaspeite.
Gaspeite is light green to apple green and is relatively rare. The colour comes from the fact that it is found around nickel sulfides. Named after the Gaspe' Peninsula in Quebec where it was originally found, although today, most is mined in Australia. Although a similar colour to turquoise, gaspeite is a nickel carbonate.
Gaspeite is a little softer than turquoise, and should be treated with at least as much care.
