Verdite Verdite is a light to dark green variety of serpentine, which is often spotted or variegated. Most specimens come from South Africa and Zimbabwe. Verdite is typically translucent or opaque and usually cut as cabochons or carved. It has a hardness on the Mohs scale of about 3. It is often referred to as 'African Jade', but it is not actually a variety of jade.
