Item Description

Seraphinite is the name given to the massive, chatoyant deep forest green Clinochlore that is most commonly found in Siberia. This material forms in stalagtitic formations, and is beautiful when it is slabbed or cabbed. This "Rectangle Cabochon" cut stone has beautiful, almost "wispy" internal formation that range in color from nearly white to a deep (almost black) green hue. The stone has somewhat of a "cat's eye" effect when it is rotated in the light, similar to Tiger's Eye gems. A cool and hard to find stone of this classic material.
