This apple green/yellow Serpentine mixed with black and gray Augite is a metamorphic rock. It was formed when water from magmas metamorphosed previous igneous or sedimentary rocks.
The material is from the Tonto National Forest in Arizona.
Serpentine is said to owe its name either to its serpent-like colors and patterns or from an old belief that the stones were effective protection from snake bites.
Metaphysical Properties of Serpentine: Serpentine is soothing to the emotional body, allowing one to release fear of change or hardship and to look forward to the future with expectation and excitement.
