Manganese substitutes for calcium in the structure with up to two percent Mn2+. It is often mottled with white calcite and occurs as veins and fracture fillings transecting many types of rock. In mineralogical literature, it may sometimes refer to any pink zoisite. Clinothulite is the manganese bearing variety of monoclinic clinozoisite.


The stone was first discovered at a place called Sauland in Telemark, Norway in 1820. It is named after the mythical island of Thule in the belief that the island is Scandinavia. It is used as a gemstone and carving material in the manufacture of jewelry and ornamental objects.

The gemstone is also found in the Austrian Tyrol and in Mitchell County, North Carolina. A new, more recent find of a small quantity of stones was discovered near Riverside in Okanogan County, Washington, US and in Snillfjord i Tr√łndelag, Norway during tunnel constructions in December 2018.
