3.7" Polished Seraphinite Sphere with Red Jasper - Siberia

This is a 3.7" wide, polished seraphinite and red jasper association that was collected from the Korshunovskoye Iron Skarn in Eastern Siberia. The chatoyant serpahinite formation contrasts nicely against the red and white jasper. It has been shaped into a sphere and flawlessly polished to a glossy finish. This mineral association is very rare, seldom will you see specimens like this on the market.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

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.
