Stichtite, a lovely pinkish-purple crystal, is often found together with Serpentine. It was named after Robert Carl Sticht, a mine owner in Tasmania, Australia, who discovered it in 1910.
A stone of peace, Stichtite can encourage one to be more compassionate towards others as well as ourselves. When placed in the home, Stichtite brings about a more tranquil atmosphere where family members can get along with each other in a more loving way. Especially useful for children who suffer from hyperactivity and/or ADHD, Stichtite can calm them down and encourage better interactions with family and friends.
Use Stichtite to increase Kundalini energy and clear blockages in the Heart chakra. Stichtite encourages clear thinking, especially when worn or held, and can ease worries that cause us to become emotionally overwhelmed and incapable of making decisions. It is a stone that says, “Be kind to others and yourself.”
Physically, Stichtite can help with emotionally-based illnesses such as high blood pressure, headaches and eating disorders. It can enhance the skin’s elasticity, especially stretch marks and those that occur with water retention. Use Stichtite to encourage healing of hernias and ruptures, as well as gingivitis.
