Stichtite

Premium quality wholesale Stichtite gemstone cabochons for jewelry making and designing. Carefully selected gemstones help you create outstanding necklaces, bracelets and earrings. Stichtite is a carbonate of chromium and magnesium and some believe it to not be a mineral in it's own right. It can range in color from pink through to purple and is found in a matrix of what I beleive to be serpentine, often a bright green. It was discovered Tasmania by a mining company and named after the mine manager Robert Sticht. I have not been able to find a definitive hardness but it seems rather soft to me. The stichtite may be harder than the host stone, most often, so it is hard to cut is my assumption and that is why it rarely seen in bead form and is usually cut into cabochons. It is said to have similar healing properties to Sugilite.
