It is shown that a thermoluminescent (TL) sheet stack detector, consisting of TL sheets and medical x-ray films, is an effective nuclearite detector. Nuclearite energy loss is not explicitly used for the estimation of the TL stack sensitivity to nuclearites, but implicitly by considering ways of energy deposition. The 90% confidence level flux limit obtained with the TL stack detector is given for a certain [iopmath latex="$\beta-M$"] -M [/iopmath] range of nuclearites. For nuclearites of [iopmath latex="$\beta= 10^{-3}$"] = 10-3 [/iopmath] at sea level and [iopmath latex="$M \ge 2\times 10^{15}$"] M2×1015 [/iopmath]  GeV  [iopmath latex="$c^{-2}$"] c-2 [/iopmath] , the limit is [iopmath latex="$1.3\times 10^{-13}$"] 1.3×10-13 [/iopmath]  s [iopmath latex="$^{-1}$"] -1 [/iopmath]  cm [iopmath latex="$^{-2}$"] -2 [/iopmath]  sr [iopmath latex="$^{-1}$"] -1 [/iopmath] .
