History: Atlantisite is a relatively new discovery in the gem and mineral world. It is a unique combination of colors. It includes the yellow-green matrix of serpentine that holds a purple and green combination of stichtite, only occurring in “Stichtite Hill” a small hilltop in Zeehan, Tasmania, where it is mined exclusively. Tasmanite and Atlantisite are two different types of gem.
The tradename “Atlantisite” was coined by Gerald Pauley and is the registered tradename for the variety of gem which comes from the specific mine in Tasmania. Atlantisite, is not called Tasmanite. Tasmanite comes from a different mine and is of inferior quality to the genuine Atlantisite. Atlantisite is the high grade gem material containing stichtite in serpentine but in the gemstone also has chromite and magnetite.
Atlantisite is a stable variety of the gem and is popular in the jewelry industry. Gerald’s company distributes the gem for the miners. The lost city of Atlantis has intrigued the imagination for hundreds of years. The legend of Atlantis has been traced back to Plato, who was the first to write about the lost city. Plato would refer to the story of Atlantis as a moral teaching trying to warn the Greek people not to go the way of materialism, as it could have devastating consequences.
The story of Atlantis has taken sholars, scientists, religious teachers and the curious on journeys all over the world to locate its whereabouts. From Bimini and the Azores, to the Sahara, Thera and Crete, the speculation of the world’s greatest super civilization has remained elusive. Atlantis could well have begun in the teaming underwater world off the coastline of Tasmania and its many islands.
Off the Tasman Peninsula lies the massive entrance of Cathedral Cave. Off the east coast of Tasmania, at Bicheno, lies odd-shaped openings that are clustered around large granite boulders that lean against other as though to signify a place with a past. Could this be the lost city of Atlantis? Until we know for sure, we can enjoy the healing powers left behind in Atlantisite, which is considered by many to bring the energies of ancient civilizations.
