A useful stone to keep in your pocket if you live alone, stichtite provides companionship and has a calming influence on the environment. This stone supports manifesting your true self, living in accordance with your soul-contract for the present life.

Assisting in keeping your mind and opinions open and your emotional awareness acute, it shows how emotions and ingrained attitudes affect your well-being.

If a child, or you, needs guiding onto a different path, Stichtite is the perfect tool, and it is excellent for indigo children who suffer from hyperactivity or similar spiritual dis-eases.

Stichtite is a rare and unusual carbonate. It forms in mostly compact masses or micaceous aggregates and is in stark contrast to the majority of carbonates that form well shaped, large and abundant crystals. Its most common locality is near Dundas on the Island of Tasmania and in fact almost all specimens sold in rock shops and from mineral dealers have Dundas listed as the source.

Stichtite has a some what dull purple-ish pink to purple-ish rose-red color. Its color, although similar in description to the other rose-red carbonates, it is actually distinctive in its own right when viewed together with the other pink carbonates. Rhodochrosite is much more redder and has white bands, sphaerocobaltite is more pinkish and stichtite is more purplish. Also adding to the distinction is the fact that the other two carbonates are more crystallized and glassy and stichtite comes from only a very few sources. Massive green serpentine is usually associated with stichtite and this green and purple-ish pink combination can make for an attractive specimen or an ornamental stone carving.
