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. Home of the Tasmanian devil, this fascinating island is one of the largest islands in the world. With a third of the island in National Reserves, Tasmania boasts some of the cleanest air and rainwater in the world.
