The name Serpentinite comes from the Latin word "Serpentinus", which means snake, and is due to the characteristic green color of the rock and the scale-like patterns it sometimes has, which make it look like the skin of a snake.

In some parts of the world the serpentinite is also called "infinite stone", because its veined and almost fractal structures, allow to lose the sight in them and fall into hypnotic landscapes.

The attractive designs and colors presented by the Serpentine have enamored artists since ancient times, having been used to create decorative and ornamental elements, as well as for the construction of buildings (College Hall of the University of Pennsylvania), coatings and furniture, as it is a rock almost as hard as marble, but unlike this, allows to obtain very bright finishes and highlight their natural enamel, through a slight and simple polishing.

The ancient Greeks believed that this wonderful stone could give clairvoyance and harmony to its bearers. And several African civilizations, among them the Egyptians and the Assyrians used it as a representative stone of fertility and abundance.

Today the "New Age" culture has once again drawn attention to these amazing stones, because in addition to other beneficial effects, it is claimed that they help to connect with the universal energy that resides in nature and to activate the Kundalini.
