5.2" Polished Seraphinite Section - Siberia
This is a 5.2" wide, polished section of seraphinite from the Korshunovskoye Iron Skarn in Eastern Siberia. This beautiful piece has been highly polished on one side, left in a rough state on the other and it 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.
