Immortal Figure, Chinese, Hand Carved Serpentine.

 

Serpentine is a gem-quality hydrated magnesium silicate, usually green, yellowish-green, or brownish-green in colour. Its name is thought to be derived from its serpent-like green colours. Serpentine is not just a gemstone, but rather, it is a group of minerals which includes up to 20 different related members. Although there are a variety of serpentines, there are only two basic aggregate structures of serpentine which include antigorite and chrysotile. Serpentine minerals are metamorphic alterations of peridotite and pyroxene, and because alterations may be incomplete in many cases, the physical properties of each specimen can vary tremendously. Gemstone quality serpentine (antigorite) is often referred to as 'noble serpentine' or 'precious' serpentine.
