The Fiskenæsset Complex is a metamorphosed, layered magmatic complex belonging to the Precambrian Shield of West Greenland. Fiskenæsset is a small community located about 160 km S of Godthåb (Nuuk). More than 40 localities of sapphirine, six of them also with kornerupine, are known in the Fiskenæs area (Petersen & Johnsen (1980); Petersen & Secher 1993).

Most of the minerals listed here are found in sapphirine-bearing rocks, but also minerals from quartz veins in granite are listed.
