Serpentine is often confused with jade because of its similar color, but is a very different stone. Serpentine is softer than jade, and is often used as a substitute for jade due to its color. The name serpentine is named after the snake skin of a snake said to have the same green speckled skin, but also derived from the Latin term “Serpentinus”. The stone has been used for ornaments and jewelry for thousands of years.
Serpentine is a good cleansing stone that detoxifies the body and blood, and is an excellent stone to clear any energy blockages in the chakras, allowing us to develop a healthy flow of energy through the emotional and physical body. The snake, which is close to this stone, is revered as a symbol of good health and is symbolized in medical institutions. The reason for this is because the snake sheds its skin and comes out of its old scales again. The stone helps to restore our energy and replenish the cells in our body.
Serpentine allows us to gain a deeper understanding of the many dimensions in which the Earth exists. It carries with it the blueprints of our future evolution of the planets and the distant past. It also tunes us in and makes us comfortable with change because it allows us to see the big picture and learn from nature.
