History/Mythology: Gaspeite is a very rare nickel carbonate mineral that was first describe in the Gaspe Peninsula, Quebec, Canada and that is how it received its name. It has only been found in Canada and Australia. In Australia the Aboriginal people in Western Australia have used Gaspeite since the Dreamtime in order to assist them to embark on spiritual visions/journeys. Mining deposits in both countries have now been depleted on a commercial level and so it is considered a rare stone. Small non commercial deposits are still available in Australia which is where I get my stones directly from.
Gaspeite is a very strong connection stone that allows you to understand that help is always there and that you only need to ask in order to receive it. It has a strong connection with nature/natural spirits and the evolution of the earth and allowing you to progress forward in an ever-changing world. Gaspeite is a stone that assists you during difficult times and allows you to understand that the solution will present itself to you and gives you the trust in accepting that answer will take you down the right path. Gaspeite is a protective stone that allows you to blend into your soundings and travel forward safely in both a physical and spiritual journey. Gaspeite is a fantastic stone to help you cut off the energetic links from energy vampires so that they cannot suck away or drain your energy.
