    Bought these simple gaspeite (aka gaspite, gasperite) earrings 15 years ago at the famous Rockhound Roundup, New Mexico. They aren't dyed, found mainly in Canada (Gaspe peninsula) and Australia. The stone is now considered rare because mines are depleted.

    Share chimed in and suggested the stone might be green turquoise from Carico Lake mine, Nevada. Looking closely I noted a milky agate in the stone. Thank you dear friend!

      Fabulous earrings Mary, the gaspeite green stones are awesome & the silver settings so gorgeous! That green is a great summer color & will look lovely with everything

      Ooooo pretty! These are pretty much exactly your favorite color ????

      Jenni - thanks! Yes, an interesting stone and I think these are Navajo silverwork.

      Sharone - thanks! actually they are a brighter green than these pictures. My favorite green tones are money (sage) or olive greens. These are a unique color. I don't have much jewelry in this color. XOXO

      Thanks friends for your loves - Fort, Kevin, Mani, Trey, Thomas, Watch, Gudrun :-)

      These are beautiful!
      I love the “rope” borders!
      Simple, elegant, classic!

      Hey love, I think you are correct. Navajo made and I believe these stones are Carico Lake! Look up the mine. Carico stones are valueable!!! Gaspeite has a brighter green and no matrix.

      Sorry Jean, I was in a bad mood so thought it better to take off my comments and stick to THE item, as I should.

      Eileen - thank you, yes aren't they simple and elegant. I like the cloudy agate mix.

      Share - WOW, I am going to edit my post after doing a bit of research. Lots of Carico Lake turquoise online - mainly from Nevada. I can't find an exact match....

      Share - thanks again for directing me to research about Carico Lake green turquoise. I did a lot of online research and based on where I bought these - I agree. So many gorgeous stones out there. Every mine has a different color.

      Thanks friends for your loves - Manikin, Kyra, Daisy, aura, cokeman, Eileen, dlpeterson, and Newtimes! I miss your posts Newtimes.
