Geochemical fingerprinting of corundum from Fiskenæsset, Greenland

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftAbstract i tidsskrift


Since the late 1960s it has been known that pink and red corundum occurs in the area near Fiskenæsset (Qeqetarsuatsiaat) in southern West-Greenland. Corundum is hosted in the Fiskenæsset complex, which is part of the Archaean basement of the North Atlantic Craton. To date, c. 40 corundum localities are known in the area – a few localities yield stones of gem quality. The most promising locality, Aappaluttoq, is likely to be mined in the near future by the Canadian company True North Gems.
