Stunning large part-polished Seraphinite. This is as large as my entire palm, and is polished to a very high quality on the 'top' side, and has been left to show the natural rounded form all the way around the edges. Amazing light-play.
Seraphinite is a popular name for a particular form of Clinochlore, a member of the Chlorite group. Said to be the 'strongest of healers' - as it is THE SAME MINERAL AS ALL OF THE GREEN COLOUR IN PLANTS.
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 down-like feathery growths leading into longer "flight feathers".
Seraphinite is found in a limited area of eastern Siberia in Russia. Russian mineralogist Nikolay Koksharov (1818-1892) is often credited with its discovery.
