Cabochon - Seraphinite (CAB004)
Out of stock
Seraphinite is a trade name for a particular form of clinochlore which is mined in a limited area of eastern Siberia in Russia. Russian mineralogist Nikolay Koksharov (1818-1892 or 1893) is often credited with its discovery. The word Seraph is from Isaiah 6 in the Hebrew Testament, and refers to winged angelic beings in service of God. It is believed that Seraphinite acquired its name due to its resemblance to feathers.
