Information about Serpentine

The name actually refers to a group of minerals, rather than a single mineral or gemstone. The three main types are Chrysotile, Antigorite, and Lizardite.

One of the important properties of the mineral is its heat resistance – some of the fibrous varieties have been used to make Asbestos.

It is used for decorative carvings, gemstones, and polished stones quite often, as it does look great when polished.

It is a reasonably soft stone, measuring between 3 and 6 on the mohs scale, so it may be suitable for cabochons and pendants, but is not ideal for use in rings, etc.
