Tasmanian stichtite is a spectacular speckled gemstone brought to you from the "Land Down Under". This wonder of the gem world is prized for its green and purple hues that have been infused together by nature.Stichtite is a purple-hued mineral usually found as a deposit within another mineral such as green serpentine. These two minerals have joined together to create this multi-hued gemstone. Stichtite can range in color from lavender-pink to purplish rose-red.
Stichtite was first discovered in 1910 in Western Tasmania, Australia by A.S. Wesley, a former chief chemist with the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company. The stone was later named after Robert Carl Sticht the manager of the mine.
