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.
Very fast shipping from Thailand to Conus. Gems were as advertised. Compared to some other the other gem dealers on the web I've dealt with Gem Select are very professional. Will definitely do more business with this proprietor.
First time visiting this site. I found it very well-organized which made it easy to find what I was looking for. I also like that the gem pictured was the actual gem you were buying and not a stock photo.
