Garnierite

Garnierite is a Nickel ore that is named after its discoverer Jule Garnier who first found it in New Caledonia in 1864. The more Nickel in the stone, the greener the colour! Garnierite is actually a name given to various stones that have degraded and remineralised with Nickel, so it does not have a strict chemical composition.
