Stichtite Serpentine Healing Properties
This rare combination of minerals carries the properties of both Serpentine and Stichtite.
Serpentine is thought to have the ability to calm and soothe the emotional aspect of our being, aiding in the release of fear related to change and challenges. It supports a positive outlook and an open mindset towards the future.
Traditionally, Serpentine has been used for activating Kundalini energy and clearing blocked energy centres.
Stichtite is believed to emit a vibration associated with love and forgiveness, fostering qualities of compassion, unity, and cooperation. This crystal is thought to provide protection from negativity by creating a protective bubble of light energy around the wearer.
It is believed that meditating with Stichtite Serpentine can assist in accessing skills and knowledge from previous lives, enabling the fulfilment of a specific purpose from that time in our present lifetime.
History and Uses
Stichtite Serpentine gets its name from the mineral stichtite, which was discovered in 1910 by R.F. Sticht in Tasmania, Australia. Stichtite is named in honour of Robert Carl Sticht, a chemist and manager of the Mt. Lyell Copper Mine in Tasmania. The green serpentine with purple veins or patches was later found to be a combination of serpentine and stichtite, and it became known as Stichtite Serpentine.
This Australian stone is sometimes called Tasmanite or Atlantisite. Atlantisite is a trading name coined by Gerald Pauley for the high-grade gem quality form, used in jewellery. This beautiful stone has been found relatively recently and only occurs at Stichtite Hill, a small hilltop in Zeehan, Tasmania, where it is exclusively mined.
In contrast, Serpentine is more widely found as a single mineral and is commonly found in South Africa, Canada and Australia.
Stichtite Serpentine forms as a result of the alteration of ultramafic rocks, such as peridotite or serpentinite, in the presence of water and other chemical reactions.
Serpentine minerals undergo a process called serpentinization, where the primary minerals are transformed into serpentine minerals, including Stichtite Serpentine. The purple veins or patches in Stichtite Serpentine are due to the presence of stichtite, a purple-coloured mineral rich in chromium and magnesium.
