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.
