History: Seraphinite (H8 Mg5 Al2 Si3 O18) is a type of chlorite (clinochlore) with silvery chatoyant fibers much like charoite in a deep green gemstone with feathery iridescent markings. With some specimens the resemblance is quite strong, with shorter down-like feathery growths leading into longer “flight feathers”. Seraphinite has chatoyancy, like cat’s eye and has a hardness between 2 and 2.5 on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness. It comes from a mine in the Lake Baikal region of Russia. Russian mineralogist Nikolay Koksharov (1818-1892) is often credited with its discovery. It occurs in the Korshunovskoye iron skarn deposit in the Irkutskaya Oblast of Eastern Siberia. The word seraph is from Isaiah 6 in the Hebrew Testament, and refers to winged angelic beings in service of God.
