What does the Green Serpentine crystal look like?

This rock will have a wax-like or slippery feel with a shiny, granular, and fibrous appearance. Serpentine is a soft stone, rating 3-5 on the Mohs hardness scale. 

“Serpentine” is a group of minerals, not a rock. Therefore, a rock that contains mainly serpentine minerals will be referenced as “Serpentine.” The green serpentine stone contains the minerals chromium and cobalt; these minerals produce green colors. The theory of the formation of this stone is that it is created with high pressure and low-temperature metamorphism of the ocean’s crust or rock from the earth’s mantle.
