Seraphinite is a trade name for a particular form of clinochlore, a member of the chlorite group. The dark green color of seraphinite is enhanced by a silvery and feathery shimmer caused by mica inclusions. Seraphinite was named for the seraphim, the highest order of angels, because of the feather-like appearance of the chatoyant fibers in the stone.
The mineral clinochlore was first identified in 1851 in West Chester, Pennsylvania. It has since been discovered in a number of other locales in the USA, including New York, Arizona, and New Jersey. Clinochlore can also be found in other countries, including Spain, Switzerland, Russia, Turkey, and Italy.
I have always been skeptical of ordering fine items online for fear of disappointment. Today, Thursday April 26, I received the blue sapphire which I ordered on Monday, April 23. Not only was I impressed with the rapid delivery of my sapphire, but I was very pleased with the way the stone was packaged and protected. The sapphire itself was far better quality than I had anticipated and it will make a beautiful centerpiece for the ring I'm having made. Thanks so much for the great experience...
I discovered Gem Select several years ago and after unsuccessfully trying to find REAL jewelry at the stores here that weren't completely out of my price range I tried online. Most of the sites had jewelry already made that were hideous. When I stumbled on gem select I found that I could design my own jewelry and pick my own stones at a very reasonable cost. And the most compliments that I ever had was for my single large amethyst that hung on a very simple silver chain. I think my total cost was about $64. I will never buy from anywhere else. Thank you Gem Select.
