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!
