This ring features a large, smooth square of Seraphinite ringed with a classic twisted rope design and hand-sawed border. The band echoes these features with more twisted rope and Native American stars on a thick, heavy band of polished sterling silver.

 Seraphinite displays a fantastic deep green background with silver or white iridescent inclusions in feather-like patterns (specifically referenced are the feathers of the seraphim, a class of biblical angels). The silver "feather" inclusions are formed from mica, which aligns in complex structures in the stone. While usually opaque, some seraphinite can include areas of translucence, allowing for even more light refraction through the stone.

Any stone named after angels has a reputation to live up to, and seraphinite is no exception. The "angel wing stone" is thought to aid connection with the spiritual world, enhance detoxification (both physical and spiritual), encourage positive energy and--more prosaically--prevent snakebite.

Seraphinite is a trade name for a particular form of silicate mineral called a clinochlore. Clinochlores get their name from the Greek word chloros (meaning "green"), in reference to their base color, not their chemical makeup. Another trade name for this stone is serafina. This stone was originally mined in a very limited location in Russia, although deposits have also been found in Turkey, Switzerland, Austria and the United States.

Seraphinite is sensitive to heat, pressure and chemicals, so clean seraphinite with a soft cloth and lukewarm water. A mild detergent can be used, but avoid any with citrus. Rinse well to remove any residues and pat dry.

Store seraphinite in a soft bag or in a lined box, so it is not in danger of being knocked together with other, harder materials. Seraphinite is sensitive to acids, including some perspiration. Remove seraphinite jewelry before swimming, playing sports or doing heavy work that might scratch it such as gardening or mechanics.
