Beautiful, 6.2" Polished Seraphinite Slab - Siberia

This is a transverse-cut slice of a chatoyant seraphinite formation that was collected from Siberia, Russia. It has been polished to a mirror like finish and is accompanied by 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.
