Atlantisite was discovered fairly recently in Zeehan, Tasmania, on what is now referred to as Stichtite Hill. This mineral only became widely known in 1910 and may be referred to as Tasmanite after its country of origin. Although it can be found in other places globally, Atlantisite is currently only mined commercially in Australia.

Atlantisite is on the rarer side of gems and is one of the most powerful forms of Serpentine, next to Infinite. This stone possesses a captivating appearance and ranges in color from very pale green to dark ivy green with purple spots of Stichtite throughout.
