Serpentine: An Earthy Gem with Many Looks

Serpentine is a gem species that includes two aggregates: the leafy antigorite and the fibrous chrysotile. Serpentine gemstones have a greasy luster and often spotty color, with a variety of hues. Many serpentine stones include green, yellow, and brown tones, which can be dyed to violet, gold, vermillion, and cream to create an even wider array of earthy looks.

Some serpentine stones contain inclusions of magnetic lodestone as well, adding a dark grey color to the mix that offsets the more vibrant colors. The name serpentine references the connection that the stone is believed to have with reptiles because of its snake-like coloration, and it is believed by some to bring inner peace and calm to the wearer.
