Prepare a solution of a nickel salt such as sulfate, nitrate, chloride, etc. This can be done by dissolving pieces of nickel in a strong acid mixture. Once you have the nickel salt, neutralize the solution and add excess baking soda. Then filter out the fine light green nickel carbonate.

Nickel carbonate is insoluble in water whereas sodium carbonate is very soluble. After dissolving sodium carbonate in water, nickel carbonate can be filtered out.
