Stone of Forgiveness
Stichtite is formed as an alteration product of chromite containing serpentine and was discovered in 1910 on the west coast of Tasmania, Australia. It was first recognised by A.S. Wesley a former chief chemist with the Mount Lyell Mining and Railway Company. It was named after Robert Carl Sticht the manager of the mine. In combination with serpentine it is used as a gemstone. According to New Age Therapists Stichtite helps to soften stubbornness. It is also used to assist in emotional and physical recovery. Relieves shyness, removes inhibitions, stimulates feelings of love and protects from negativity.
