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 small Serpentine beads measure in at 3 to 4 mm each and have the distinct and one-of-a-kind green/yellow color that Serpentine is known for. These would be excellent for accent beads because of their vibrant color and smooth polish.
