Seraphinite - Russia Stone
Seraphinite apparently acquired its name due to its resemblance to feathers due to its chatoyancy. Seraphinite is named after the biblical seraphs or seraphim angels. With some specimens the resemblance is quite strong, with shorter down-like feathery growths leading into longer "flight feathers"; the resemblance even spurs fanciful marketing phrases like "silver plume seraphinite." Seraphinite is generally dark green to gray in color, has chatoyancy, and has hardness between 2 and 4 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
Seraphinite is a gem variety of Clinochlore, a magnesium iron aluminum silicate, characterized by a deep green color laced with shimmering patterns of silver that reflect light . It is found only in the Lake Baikal region of Siberia, Russia. It is also known as Serafina or Green Chlorite.
Seraphinite has a high frequency energy which resonates with the spiritual realm and can stimulate Kundalini. Enhances the flow and elasticity of emotional energy and releases negativity and replaces it with a joyful, enlightened energy.
