Seraphinite is a variety of Clinochlore which is a hydrous magnesium iron aluminum silicate. Characterized by patterns of dark green and a lighter silvery/green, that “shimmer” in certain light.
Seraphinite acquired its name due to its resemblance to feathers due to its chatoyancy. Seraphinite is named after the biblical seraphs or seraphim angels. With some specimens the resemblance is quite strong, with shorter down-like feathery growths leading into longer “flight feathers”; the resemblance even spurs fanciful marketing phrases like “silver plume seraphinite.” Seraphinite has hardness between 2 and 4 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness.
Seraphinite 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. It occurs in the Korshunovskoye iron skarn deposit in the Irkutskaya Oblast of Eastern Siberia.
Another rare form of Clinochlore is the purple-colored variety known as Kammererite.
