Serpentine may have been named because itís colour and markings resemble that of the skin of some snakes or because of the ancient belief that it provides protection against snake or serpent venom.
Serpentine is a very earthing stone and is excellent for enhancing meditation and helping you to find inner peace. It is said to help you to feel more in control of your life and to help correct emotional and mental imbalances.
Serpentine is believed to encourage the conscious direction of healing energy towards problem areas and to be good for clearing cloudy Chakras and for stimulating the Crown Chakra.
In healing Serpentine is believed to aid the detoxification of the internal organs and the blood.
