Large Serpentine Bead
A large gorgeous rich green Serpentine “Amazonite” stone Bead … This is a really stunning centerpiece for your next Big Project !! I had fun using these beads in some necklaces . I have three beads in stock and they range from 21-23×40-41 mm. You will receive one of the beads in the photo.
Doing research the internet had this to say about these beads:
‘Serpentine (also called greenstone) beads are usually similar in shape to amazonite beads and can be found combined with amazonite beads in traders’ strands. Serpentine is a uniformly dark green or greenish yellow stone. Vivid Forest Green Serpentine Beads have been treasured throughout West Africa for more than a thousand years. These ancient hand shaped and drilled stone beads are probably from Mauritania or Mali, where they are thought to have been imported into Africa across important trade routes for Gold, Copper, and Salt at the height of the Empire of Mali.
In crystal healing, the Serpentine crystal harnesses powerful healing energy that works to create an energetic and protective shield around the body. When you feel safe and guarded from proverbial snakebites, it gives you the freedom and security you need to glow with love and happiness.’
