Serpentine is a magnesium silicate mineral with a hardness ranging from 2 to 5.5. Its crystal structure can be monoclinic, orthorhombic or hexagonal, but it does not form macroscopic crystal. Rather, it occurs in dense masses or fibrous form. Serpentine derives its name from the similarity of its green color and often smooth surfaces to the skin of some snakes. Serpentine can vary in color from pale yellow-green to deep forest green to almost black. Some varieties contain spots of Magnetite. The famous Connemara marble of Ireland is a mixture of Serpentine with marble. Serpentine is found widely, including important deposits in Great Britain, South Africa, Brazil and the United States.
Serpentine assists in exploring the deep history of the Earth and Nature and helps one find one's natural place within the greater web of life. Serpentine enhances communication with Nature and the Earth – including animal, plant and stone communication.
Serpentine is soothing to the emotional body, allowing one to release fear of change and hardship ad to look ahead to the future with expectation and excitement. It reminds us of the great span of time that the Earth and Nature have been learning, versus the relatively brief moment that humanity has inhabited the planet. This perspective can help one to feel less self-centered and more wiling to spend time and energy contributing to the greater good, rather than focusing solely on personal goals.
In healing work, Serpentine can assist in cellular regeneration and in replenishing one's energy.
