A rich and varied stone, serpentinite is one of threepounamustones used in traditional carving, and one of the most recognizable. A metamorphic stone formed from antigorite, lizardite and chrysotile, this wide mix of minerals produce a stone of immense complexity, and individual pieces can contain colours ranging from deep moss green to aquatic blue, with gold, orange, and brown highlights.
A healing stone, serpentinite replenishes and restores energies within the body and creates a protective field around its wearer.
