A rich and varied stone, serpentinite is one of three pounamu stones 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. Sometimes porous, serpentinite can absorb oils from your skin and its colour may deepen over time - this should not be seen as a flaw but as part of the stone’s natural evolution with its wearer.
