Serpentine has a Monoclinic crystal system and is the mineral class of phyllo or sheet silicates. It is formed during a metamorphosis of alkaline igneous rocks, like in Peridot converting to its crystalline state. It can occur in rock forming processes as green ‘leaf’ serpentine or as a silvery, fibrous serpentine called chrysotile (found in Australia).
Serpentine is provided in a multitude of colors. It can be found as reds, greens, browns, blackish green and even white. In it’s lighter shades of green it is also known as Infinite Stone which is gentle and brings you into contact with angelic guidance.
