Stone Magic: Serpentine

By Katrina Rasbold

In ancient Assyria, people called seals made of serpentine to amplify the blessings of the gods and goddesses. It got its name from its ability to protect the owner from poisonous snakes, spiders, scorpions, bees, wasps, and other creatures.

This form of banded agate commonly shows up in bedrock and is an excellent selection to use for stone carving.

Nursing mothers keep serpentine close to them to increase their milk supply and the baby’s ability to latch on.

Likely stemming from its protection of the owner from animal attacks, serpentine is known as the traveler’s stone as it helps travelers arrive safely at their destination. Put a piece of serpentine in your luggage to ensure it arrives with you when flying without redirection or loss.

Partying off of that attribute, this is a wonderful stone to use to help you locate a new home and successfully sell your previous home.
