Serpentine gets its name from its lovely green speckled appearance which resembles snakeskin. The stone has long been associated with the healing and regenerative energies of the snake. Serpentine is known for its ability to arouse Kundalini energy that rests at the base of the spine like a coiled snake. The crystal can also be used to balance and clear all of the Chakras and is especially helpful in opening the Heart and Crown Chakras.
Serpentine is an excellent stone to use in meditation. It opens psychic abilities, clears negative thoughts, and helps you break free from societial pressure and follow your dreams. This crystal guides you towards your soul’s purpose especially when you are feeling lost on your path.
This stone allows you to assert control over your life, balance hormones, ensure longevity, and cleanse and detoxify the body. Carrying serpentine will give you an energetic protective shield. My favorite aspect of serpentine (besides the fact that it is green–I have a weakness for green stones) is its ability to connect you to Nature and Earth energy. I use it to feel grounded while meditating or doing Tarot readings.
