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.
