Now for a little bit of history, myth and legend!
The name serpentine is derived from the latin 'serpentinus' meaning 'serpent rock' due to the olive green and scaly appearance of some of the stones. Serpentine is actually a group of mineral polymorphs the most common ones being: antigorite; chrysotile; lizardite. A polymorphous mineral is one that has the same chemical formulae but are arranged in different structures, crystal lattices. Serpentine is known for being used by the aztec civilisation where it was highly valued. It comes in a range of colours from light to dark with differing amounts of inclusions within the stones themselves.
In crystal healing serpentine is a stone that is thought to aid meditation and spiritual exploration. It is often used to unblock the chakras and to stimulate the crown chakra and open new pathways for the kundalini energy to rise. Serpentine is thought to be cleansing and detoxifying for the body.
