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 particular beads are faceted Serpentine with a light Chartreuse coloring creating an outstanding effect in the light paired with the faceting. The beads are circular and measure in at .5 cm, they would make a great accent of color in a necklace project when combined with darker greens or, for for vibrancy, combined with a range of pinks.
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.
