Sometimes nothing soothes and restores our spirits like the color green. Whether it's the pale green of an apple, the citrus shade of peridot, the color of froth on a cool ocean wave, or a luscious lemony/lime green you're longing for, "new jade" serpentine beads has it. Serpentine is found all over the world. It may have a variety of appearances, chemical compositions and even names. This particular serpentine's shades of green will make you feel as if you're stretched out in a hammock gently rocked by cool summer breezes. You'll naturally want to combine these beads with floral tones and other pastels. Color your world green-with blissful, tranquil green "new jade" serpentine jewelry.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

"New jade" serpentine is said to have the same spiritual values as green jade. Because it produces a tranquil mood, it helps us when we're depressed, especially when we feel stuck in a situation. Wear it when you can't stand the person you're living with another minute longer. Or your job is driving you crazy. Wear it whenever what you'd really like to do is run away, but you think it's wiser not to. Like green jade, "new jade" serpentine can help you get grounded, so you can live with the situation and feel more tranquil while you're doing it.
