Seraphinite is a form of Clinochlore, a member of the Chlorite group.
Seraphinite is named after the biblical six-winged seraphs or seraphim angels. It acquired its name due to its resemblance to feathers from its chatoyancy.
Seraphinite is a stone of love, nurturing and wholeness. it is thought to be attuned to the heart chakra bringing a sense of warmth and well being to those to wear or carry it, and those who come into its energy field.
It links the physical realms with the spiritual and is also thought to be powerful in opening communications with devic and angelic realms, especially those concerned with healing the planet.
This stone has high spiritual energy, ascending through the human body and encouraging Kundalini energy to rise up along the spine, clearing and activating each chakra along the way.
