Serpentine assists the retrieval of wisdom, helping to regain memory of past lives. It clears the chakras and stimulates the crown chakra, opening psychic abilities. Serpentine assists the conscious direction of healing energy toward problem areas. It corrects mental and emotional imbalances, helping you to feel more in control of your life.
Serpentine treats diabetes and hypoglycemia. It eliminates parasites within the body, and aids in the absorption of calcium and magnesium. Serpentine is extremely cleansing and detoxifying for the body and blood. (From Charms of Light.)
This piece of serpentine is very light in colour. And the mint shade of green happens to be quite close to this colour too.
It’s actually a very thin piece of serpentine, almost like a large chip, so I thought it would be best to cover up as little of the stone as possible. The wire holds the stone in place well, and I made short stems and curls near the bail of the pendant. This is quite similar to the green prehnite piece that I made a while ago; actually, serpentine and prehnite are quite similar, just different shades of green.
