Serpentine is actually a subgroup of the kaolinite-serpentine group. Serpentine can form in varieties of greens, browns and sometimes form with some spotting. The serpentine group of minerals are polymorphous, which means that while they have the same chemical formula, the atoms arrange differently, giving you the variety you see in the Serpentine family. Serpentine has long been used in carving and jewelry.
These Serpentine pieces are mixed with Quartz, giving them an olive and white mottled look that is quite pleasant to they eye. Each piece is between 10 and 30mm. While there are no health hazards to Serpentine, we do not recommend adding Serpentine to fish tanks or plants as the level of nickel and other minerals in the Serpentine has been found to interfere with plant grow (plants do not grow well in areas with high Serpentine in the soil). These stones will look great in many crafting and home décor ideas, an indoor fountain would also look magnificent with these stones.
Serpentine is thought to connect with the earth, enhance meditation, and aid in spiritual exploration. A person looking to feel more in control of their life will want to work with Serpentine. A long life and mental and emotional balance are also linked to this beautiful stone.
