Serpentine (also known as New Jade) is an earth stone that brings the blessings and protection of the ancestors. By deepening your meditation and removing energetic blockages, this stone helps you to make peace with time. Use it to clear clouded areas of the chakras so that they can align more easily. When mental or emotional balances are present, serpentine provides clarity and comfort.
The ancient Romans used Serpentine to protect against sorcery and the dark arts.
Serpentine is a metamorphic rock made up of several different kinds of minerals. This stone comes in a wide variety of colors, from translucent apple greens to opaque browns. Serpentine has been mined in the United Kingdom, Norway, Russia, Zimbabwe, Italy, and the United States.
Serpentine resonates with the root, crown, third eye and heart chakra.
You can place serpentine in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
Gemini is typically associated with serpentine.
Folklore states that serpentine is able to help with calcium and magnesium absorption, as well as aid the pancreas and blood.
