Stichtite & Serpentine Freeform
What a beautiful combo.
Stichtite is a mineral, a hydrated magnesium chromium carbonate, which can be usually found in igneous and metamorphic rock. Stichtite is formed as an alteration product of chromite containing serpentine. Australia is a major source for stichtite, but it has also been found in Brazil, Canada, India, Morocco, Russia, Scotland and Sweden.
Stichtite is believed to be a stone of rescue, recovery and forgiveness. The gemstone is thought to help heal unresolved issues and emotional issues by promoting feelings of love and compassion. Metaphysical healers use stichtite to assist in restoring emotional and physical health after illness, depression or emotional trauma. Stichtite has a strong effect on the heart, third eye and crown chakras.
Serpentine is a magnesium silicate mineral with a monoclinic, orthorhombic or hexagonal crystal system and a hardness ranging from 2 to 5.5. Major deposits are in England, South Africa, Brazil and the USA.
Serpentine is one of the best stones for rousing the kundalini energies—the “serpent power” said to reside at the base of the spine. Serpentine is also a good stone to place on the meridian points for clearing blocked energies and allowing the healthy, natural flow to be reestablished.
