RUSSIAN SERPENTINE is also included in this collection, with its beautiful dark-to-light olive green colorations,

and interesting black spotted and veined matrix - some with a metallic-like sheen.

SERAPHINITE

SERAPHINITE (Serafina or Clinochlore) is a deep forest green to green-black with inclusions of Silvery Mica. The name Seraphinite is derived from the Latin word "seraphim" referring to angels. The allusion to angels is because of the feathery wing-like patterns made by the Silvery-white Mica contained within the stone.  The Mica inclusions have a beautiful pearly-white chatoyancy, much like Charoite. The stone is a member of the Chlorite Group of minerals ("Chloros” meaning green). It is mined in eastern Siberia, Russia, near Bratsk and Lake Baikal. Varieties of Seraphinite in yellow, red, brown, tan or white are also available, but not shown here.

GREEN JADE

In 1863, JADE - a gemstone that was known to exist for seven thousand years, was proven to conside of two separate two separate and distinct minerals: JADEITE and NEPHRITE. Despite their different properties, the term "Jade" is used to describe both of these lovely gemstones. JADEITE is known to have three species: IMPERIAL JADE is an emerald-green and is translucent to almost transparent. It is considered the most desired variety of jade. CHLOROMELANITE is a combination of jadeite, albite (transparent-to-translucent) feldspar and other minerals. It's color is a deep green with dark green-to-black spots or veins. YUNAN-JADE, which is often found is interlayered with another stone (Serpentine). NEPHRITE is the more common jade. It also has several varieties: INDIAN JADE, which is actually the tradename for aventurine (which has lovely, glistening mica inclusions). RUSIAN JADE, the trade name for spinach-green nephrite, and WYOMING JADE, which is the trade name for nephrite from Wyoming, and is a green-colored stone composed of tremolite with albite. (For more details about these gemstones, please see "Gemstones of the World" by Walter Schumann, 5th Edition).
