‘Infinite Stone’ is the trade name given to Serpentine specifically found in South Africa. This particular vein of Serpentine has gathered attention because it is believed to be far superior to other Serpentines. Infinite is a mixture of Serpentine and Chrysotile – which is asbestos and the beige color in this beautiful, banded combination.
Serpentine is a general name for a group of closely related metamorphic rocks that are translucent to opaque, waxy, tough, fibrous, and frequently occurring in veins. These minerals have essentially the same chemistry but sometimes a different structure. They occur in various shades of green and are a magnesium silicate mineral.
Serpentine acquired its name from its similarity in color and smoothness to that of some snakes. Its connection to the serpent links it to the powerful regenerative properties of this transformational reptile. Allow Serpentine to inspire you in shedding your old patterns and beginning anew.
With its deep connection to the Earth, and the nurturing of the first four chakras of the body, Serpentine supports your healing by aligning your energy field with the Earth and invigorating the body. This alignment will create a soothing energy in your auric field. Kundalini energy is thought, also, to be activated by this powerful stone.
Restful sleep, stress reduction, and a better outlook due to the easing of emotional trauma are all qualities associated with Serpentine.
