It’s a rare formation of two different, yet closely related minerals. The Nephrite causes the soothing green color of the stone, but the pattern gives it a distinctive serpentine appearance. When light is held behind, the translucent jade content is visible.
I found this serpentine jade specimen in British Columbia, near Lillooet, known as jade country. Hand cut and polished on lapidary diamond wheels to a glasslike smoothness and brilliant shine. The silver wire wrap setting is a minimalist style, a simple method, that focuses on showing the entire size of the stone, yet holds it firm and safe in place.
We consider the serpentine in the metaphysical world as the stone that protects against negativity while drawing in positivity. Jade, on the other hand, is also known as a protective stone and often called the dream stone, that radiates wisdom and tranquillity. If you look for a gemstone for spirituality, just imagine what doors this gemstone can open for you.
Our gemstone pendants are cut from mostly self-collected natural semi-precious crystals and minerals. Local Canadian Rocky Mountain gems from far up the arctic circle to the south point of Vancouver Island. We also buy and trade interesting specimens with worldwide partners.
Handmade jewelry, what you find in the store, is available to purchase. Some stones are drilled and set with findings, but our preferred method is the modern and minimalist style of wire wrapping, which focuses on showing the entire stone size, yet holds it firm and secure in place.
We never die, color, or alter our stones in many ways, all pendants are 100% natural stones, polished with a nine-step lapidary process. The settings are made of sterling silver jewelry wire.
We have a large collection of jewelry-quality raw minerals, ready to cut. Custom shape and size cutting are available.
Sorry, we do not sell raw stone, we use it or only trade it.
