Serpentine, although not an altogether beautiful stone is precious still. This stone has quite the history among the ancient ones like the Romans and even America, something I will talk about later. This stone can be found in the United States, China, India and Southwest Africa. It's actually said that this stone was called Serpentine after the serpent due to the stones color as you can see in the pictures.

Like several different stones and crystals this one too has magical and healing properties. It can be used in crystal healing and in rituals in order to enhance them. In this hub you'll discover what this stone may be able to do for you in your life.

The Ancients

It's said, according to legend anyway that the Romans used Serpentine for protection against sorcery and the dark arts. Cups were made out of Serpentine in several cultures because they believed it'd protect them against poison. That they'd shatter with contact of poison.

The civilizations of America believed that this stone was a guardian against invisible powers as well as a protector of the soul. And in the middle ages this stone was used to increase the healing powers of medicine.


Serpentine has been used to help with cardiac irregularities. If you are someone who struggles with digestion issues such as stomach or bowel complications then this stone may be able to help that as well. It's also been said that Serpentine has been able to help those with Kidney disorders.

Now I don't know about you but for my fellow woman a stone like this can prove to be very helpful for that little monthly visitor. Any kind of menstrual issues that one may have this stone can help that. Whether it be irregularity, pain, bloating anything along those lines this stone will help.

Serpentine can also assist in healing with lung problems and can be great with cellular regeneration. This stone can also be helpful with those who have diabetes.

When it comes to parasites this stone can aid with those and if you're someone who struggles to absorb calcium and magnesium this stone can help that too.

Serpentine has several different helpful healing properties. It can prove to be quite useful and helpful to one that uses it in crystal healing. Let me remind you to always keep your crystals charged and cleansed when using them. Also that you should still go to your doctor when it comes to your health. It's your decision if you want to fully rely on crystal healing just keep in mind I personally feel like it is important to continue seeing your doctor. And keep in mind that I myself am not a doctor.

Magical Properties

It's said that if you dream of Serpentine that that someone close to you will do something really bad, something treacherous. It's also said that elemental beings will be encouraged to communicate with you when using this stone, this includes angelic beings such as guidance.

Serpentine is also a real good meditation stone, helping someone to find inner peace and to clear ones mind. It's used for protection and helping one to let go of their anger.

The element of this stone is Fire and it's associated with the planet Saturn. The Zodiac for Serpentine is considered to be Gemini and Scorpio. It's because of it's association with Scorpio that it's said to protect one from venomous bites.

Last but not least if you are thinking about using this stone with your chakras this stone is best used for the heart chakra.


Serpentine may not be a stone that you look at and think is pretty at first glance. Actually you may never think this stone is pretty but this stone is actually very amazing and has a history. It's been used for hundreds of years for both healing and protection purposes and the way I see it why should we stop now?

      I ordered some 'Black Jade' chopsticks from eBay. It turns out they are Serpentine and not true Jade. It's good to hear they still have some healing properties, especially for digestive issues. That's good news if I eat at the wrong Chinese restaurant and my fortune cookie says "That wasn't Chicken!"

      I have a serpentine sphere that I keep on me in my purse all of the time. It's a beautiful and somewhat mysterious feeling stone to me. I liked this hub. Voted up and useful.
