Stichtite was named after Robert Carl Sticht, the owner of the mine where it was first found. Pure stichtite is a rosy pink, fuschia, or lilac color. Stichtite can be found in Australia and South Africa. It is a very soft stone recommended for necklaces.
Overtime, fuschia Stichtite replaces vivid green chromite containing serpentine. While most of each bead is still serpentine, they feature small flashes of stichtite!
Stichtite is said to promote healing.
