Serpentine

Serpentine and Lizardite are both apt names for this stone due to the reptilian appearance of its surface. More translucent examples of serpentine are very often marketed as a faux jade, a few common names for serpentine "jade" are new jade, yellow jade and Afghan jade. Serpentine is a very good looking and versatile stone all on its own and has no need to be marketed as anything other than serpentine. Serpentine is a waxy silicate of magnesium, and is less dense than the true jade it is often substituted for.

Description: Magnesite or Magnesium Carbonate can range from transparent to opaque and is a highly porous, low luster stone which makes it a great candidate for enhancement and dying. It can be difficult to distinguish Magnesite from both dolomite and serpentine, both are also very suitable stones for enhancement and often marketed as faux jade . Magnesite can be dyed into a broad spectrum of bold colors, and is often enhanced to resemble turquoise, it is sometimes known as lime turquoise, white turquoise, or marshmallow turquoise. Native American cultures have crafted Magnesite into beads for both jewelry and currency for hundreds of years.
