The name of Seraphinite comes from the “seraphim,” with the highest angel rank in the Bible. Its white lines appear on the green background, just like an angel spreading its wings.

Its scientific name is Clinochlore, with has a fine texture but is very fragile. In Russia, Seraphinite has the title of “Angel Stone.” It is said that everyone who gets it can get lucky and happy.

Comparison between Charoite and Seraphinite


Mineral Composition and Structure of Charoite

Charoite is a new mineral discovered in the former Soviet Union in 1960. It is named after its origin near the Charo River in Outer Baikal.

Since 1973, it has been developed and utilized as a gem (jade).

Its chemical formula is K(Ca; Na)2Si4O10(OH; F)•H2O. As a kind of jade, the main mineral composition of Charoite stone is Charonite, which can contain aegirine, feldspar, tinaksite, augite, calcite, etc.

It has fibrous structure. Charoite is like flame, bundle, hair and whirlpool, just like dragons flying, so it is called Charoite commercially.

Basic properties of Charoite

1) Mohs hardness: 5-6.

2) Toughness: good toughness.

3) Density: about 2.68g/cm, varying with different components.

4) Optical property: heterogeneous aggregate.

5) Refractive index: 1.550 ~ 1.559.

6) Gloss: glass luster to waxy luster, partial silk luster.

7) Color: purple, light purple, purple-blue, with white, golden yellow, black, brown, and other color spots, Or with white swirling fine lines.

8) Transparency: translucent to slightly transparent.


Mineral composition and structure of chlorite jade

A kind of chlorite jade was produced near Lake Baikal, Russia, with a scale-like structure. Its main mineral composition is Penninite in Chlorite family, and its chemical formula is (Mg, Fe)5Al〔AlSi3O10〕(OH)8.

The scale-like and leaf-like crystals of penninite are arranged in bundles and bushes. Cluster-like and clump-like aggregates in different directions are interlaced and overlapped with white feathery patches.

This kind of chlorite jade is called Seraphinite (in Russia, it is called angel stone) because of the original relationship between Seraphinite and Charoite, as well as the similarity in morphology and structure.

However, Charoite and Seraphinite are two different jades, not only with completely different main mineral compositions but also with very different hardness.

Basic properties of chlorite jade

1) Mohs hardness: about 2.5.

2) Density: 2.61~2.63g/cm.

3) Optical property: heterogeneous aggregate.

4) Refractive index: point measurement 1.57 or 1.58.

5) Gloss: glass luster, silk luster.

6) Color: dark green to grayish green, with white spots.

7) Transparency: slightly transparent to opaque.

Seraphinite Healing property

Seraphinite belongs to the healing stone of monoclinic system. It can release soft and powerful energy to help all people whose hearts have been hurt.

When we always have a particular belief but are not accepted, or even persecuted, or when we yearn for freedom but cannot get it, we can use the Seraphinite to clean up these wounds.

The Seraphinite with mild performance, encourages people to devote themselves to life and embrace love. It helps people examine life’s progress and realize that appropriate changes must be made to bring peace and satisfaction.

According to the theory of some crystal players, putting the Seraphinite on the eyebrow center wheel or sharing thoughts with it will help open people’s spirituality and improve their self-healing ability.

It is also one of the channeling crystals, which is said to be able to open the top chakras and even higher chakras.

In addition, some people believe that its feather-like patterns can enable people to enter a high degree of spiritual vibration, and it is the best gem when the soul wears out and can protect the body when the soul leaves.

The Seraphinite is very effective in the spiritual field. From a physiological point of view, it can stimulate the spinal cord, especially when you put it on the back; it can relieve the muscle tension from that position to the neck. It also helps to lose weight and ward off cold.

How to use Seraphinite

Seraphinite belongs to the Chlorite family. Chlorite is a layered silicate mineral group mainly composed of iron, magnesium and aluminum, with a crystal structure similar to mica.

More than ten independent species have been known to mankind, and the ore body is generally green, so it is named chlorite.

It generally occurs in metamorphic rocks, hydrothermal metamorphic rocks, and hydrothermal ore veins with low temperature and pressure.

Generally, the chlorite we see is “clinochlore,” containing iron and magnesium. The more iron, the darker the green will be. The purplish red ore body containing chromium is called “chrome chlorite.”
