History & Origin:

Garnierite, or Green Moonstone, is a beautiful mint green variety of Serpentine, rich in Nickel ore. It was named after French geologist Jules Garnier who first discovered it in 1864 in New Caledonia. While it is sometimes incorrectly labelled as Moonstone (Feldspar), no composition or formula has been universally adopted. It can sometimes be found in combination with Feldspar, which is what gives certain stones a subtle iridescence.
