Russian Serpentine Beads
Russian Serpentine gemstone beads are like small clusters of woodland moss or the skin of a lizard under a microscope. So much visual texture!
Russian Serpentine is a magnesium silicate. The name Serpentine comes from the word serpent, because of its scaly, reptilian appearance. Many serpentines are used as more affordable alternatives to jade. While serpentines can be found all over the world, this variety is specific to Russia.
Serpentine is said to promote clearing the mind and meditation.
