Stichtite in serpentine was first observed in about 1891 in the vicinity of the Adelaide mine, Dundas (east of Zeehan), stichtite is a rare magnesium/chromium/carbonate-hydroxide. The mineral was named stichtite after Robert Carl Sticht, an American-born industrialist and metallurgist who worked in Tasmania from 1897 until his death in 1922.

Today, stichtite has value as a gemstone and ornamental material; accordingly, it is mined in small amounts, and carved and polished into small figurines, spheres and other objects. It can also be seen in the West Coast Pioneers Museum in Zeehan.

You will receive the same quality as you see in my pictures, I always send from the same batch. I will randomly select one strand. As the colour & size can vary slightly, please do not request for one particular strand. You can buy the whole batch to ensure you will get the best ones.
