3.4" Polished Seraphinite Stone - Korshunovkiy Mine, Siberia
This is a polished section of seraphinite that was collected from the Korshunovkiy mine (Korshunovskoye Iron Skarn) Siberia, Russia. The entire specimen has been polished to a glossy finish, revealing the chatoyant nature of this stunning mineral.
Seraphinite is a trade name for a particular, dark-green, feathery form of the mineral clinochlore. This material is mined exclusively from the Korshunovskoye iron skarn deposit in the Irkutskaya Oblast of Eastern Siberia. It apparently acquired its name due to its resemblance to feathers due to its chatoyancy. Seraphinite is named after the biblical seraphs or seraphim angels.
