Serpentine Stone is believed to be a magical stone. It is said to be an amazing stone for awakening your intuition and insight, particularly in the development of your psychic abilities.
The lore surrounding the stone was handed down from ancient healers who believed that the stone contained the medicine of the snake and that the crystal could be used as an antidote to snake bites. The Serpentine Stone is also known to be a stone of strong protection as it forms a protective shield around the physical body and possesses the power to deflect any negative energy.
The word Serpentine Stone is connected to the Serpentine Symbol. Hermes, the father of alchemy, used the symbol of two intertwining snakes around a sword to represent healing. In modern medicine, it is known as the Caduceus.
Used in crystal healing, the Serpentine crystal is known to contain the energy of sexuality, and fertility, and the regulation of female cycles. The Serpentine Symbol also represents the Kundalini energy that is housed at the base of our spine that, through meditation and spiritual practice, can be unleashed, rising up the spine to create a nirvana state of consciousness and a potential physical connection to the divine.
