Serpentine is a stone composed of one or more serpentine group minerals. Serpentine gets its name from the texture of the stone itself, resembling that of a snake.
In ancient times, Serpentine was believed to protect against snake venom and as well as against spiders, bees, and scorpions. It is excellent for trance work, rituals and shamanism and is said to be particularly favored by the Celts. Serpentine is an earthy grounding stone, aiding in meditation, and helping to understand the spiritual basis of life. It opens new pathways for the kundalini energy to rise within. Serpentine helps you feel more in control of your life, correcting mental and emotional imbalances and focusing healing energy toward problem areas.
