Greenlandite was discovered in the 1960s during the survey of the large iron deposit, Isukasia north of Nuuk. Greenlandite was subsequently discovered in several localities in the Godhabsfjord area. It was later proven that the geological environment in which Greenlandite was formed was in the order of 3.8 billion years old. This is a very old crystal.

Geologically speaking, the rock consist of quartzite with a large content of a green minerals - fuchsite - evenly distributed throughout, giving the stone a fresh green color. Quartzite is made of fine-grained quartz, while the chromium-containing fuchsite resembles glitter, with fine spangles distributed throughout the rock. Greenlandite is a hard mineral, often translucent with a metallic inner glow derived from its many spangles. this type of stone is also known, in the jewelry trade, as aventurine quartz.
Greenlandite has been used as a gemstone in Greenland for many years, justly marketed as “the world’s oldest gemstone”. Green aventurine quartz has long been known as an Indian or Brazilian gemstone, and more recently stones from southern Africa have appeared which can be difficult to distinguish from greenlandite. Experts will note that the color of greenlandite is a more bluish green than that of the foreign variants of aventurine quartz. Any confusion with jade (nephrite) (hardness H=6) can be resolved with a hardness test.
