Product Description

Custom hand cut and polished Serpentine and custom wire wrapped in sterling silver wire

size 35mm x 23mm or 1 7/16 inches x 7/8 inches

Attractive serpentine can be cut into a wide variety of gemstones. It is most often cut into cabochons and beads. They usually display a range of green, yellow and black colors and often have magnetite, chromite or other minerals as interesting inclusions. The lower left side of the green and black cabochon in the center of the photo at right contains enough included magnetite that the cab can be moved with a small hand magnet.

Gemstone quality serpentine is easy to polish and beautiful finishes are possible. However, it usually polishes to a waxy luster rather than a the brilliant glassy luster of much harder materials such as agate, jasper and faceted stones. Rockhounds who polish their first piece of serpentine and know this have their expectations calibrated in advance. The waxy luster is beautiful and common characteristic of the material. It does not reflect the skill of the operator. Extra polishing time and effort will still produce a waxy luster.
