The green; it’s an ever-present color of nature. But it’s not a common color among natural stones. That’s a shame, because green is expressive, easy on the eyes, and fun to design with. But fear not, Mother Nature didn’t totally forget green in her palette of stone colors. Some stones, like ONYX, KATNI & serpentine, are known for their verdant hues. While others, like soapstone and granite, have green variants that stand out from the earth-tone crowd. Let’s explore some green stones and illuminate their properties, minerals, and geologic origins.

The green, mottled pattern and waxy feel of serpentine inspired its name – a reference to snakeskin. Serpentine can be a vibrant bright green, or a deep forest-green. It’s fine-grained and smooth, and it polishes to a satiny luster. Accents of brown, red, and white can liven up the stone with vivid movement, or it can have a serene aesthetic with gentle swirls of green and ivory.

While the distinctive look of serpentine makes it easy to spot, it’s one of those stones that can get a bit confused within the industry, leading to some conflicting information. Often serpentine is labeled as green marble, and sometimes it’s classified as hard soapstone. it’s neither. Unfortunately, serpentine can be a little tricky to identify because its hardness, color, and pattern can vary. That’s because serpentine isn’t one exact rock; it’s a family of stones that all form in a similar way, but can have slightly different minerals in them.

If you were to do a little Googling about ONYX KATNI and serpentine, you’d discover phrases like, “Serpentinites form as a result of serpentinization.”

Thankfully, we can clarify that explanation. ONYX, KATNI and Serpentine geologically known as serpentine, but we’ll keep things simple here is a metamorphic rock, which means it was first some other kind of rock and then experienced a change in conditions. The precursor to serpentine is an iron-rich magma that forms way underneath the ocean floor. In fact, this magma’s source is so deep that it comes from Earth’s mantle, many miles down in Earth’s interior. This deep, dense magma gives rise to the bright green mineral olivine, which is also known as peridot, August’s birthstone.

When this iris, green stone mingles with hot seawater, new types of minerals are formed. This process is common, but it happens so deeply within the Earth’s crust that it’s rare to see it up here on the surface. But thanks to plate tectonics, deep rocks sometimes get shoved upwards, making geologists giddy for a glimpse of what’s happening far below our boots.

Because it’s made of a range of minerals, ONYX, KATNI and serpentine also has a range of hardness, between 3 and 6 on Mohs scale. That means it’s harder than marble but softer than granite. It’s a good idea to do a test to investigate the hardness of the stone.

Even though onyx, katni ,serpentine and marble have similar hardness, it’s easy to tell them apart.

If the stone has white veins, it’s a good idea to do another test to see if the white parts of the stone look. Sometimes onyx, Kayni and serpentine has white veins of calcite, that look very pretty.

If you pine for a green stone, but don’t want uncertainties in terms of hardness or durability, then ONYX, KATNI and green granite is your answer. While commercial granite is typically grey, ivory, brown, or black, it can sometimes be green too. There’s no single geologic explanation for green granite’s; they all have a different story behind their color.

Some green granite’s owe their coloration to less-common minerals, like Costa Esmeralda. Costa Esmeralda is a vibrant combination of apple-green epidote, along with the usual quartz and feldspar.
In other cases, green granite is caused by an uncommon color of a common mineral. Feldspar’s are the primary ingredients in granite and occasionally they can be green. For example, Peacock Green features a green feldspar called microcline, which is also known as the gemstone Amazonite.

Emerald Pearl also called Labrador Emerald is another granite that contains green feldspar. This stone is deep, dark green – almost black – with shimmering undertones that lend depth to a polished surface.

Labradorite is shiny, bright green thanks to an iridescent variation of feldspar called labradorite.
Other green granite’s include Verde Butterfly, Ubatuba, Typhoon Green, Lapland Green, and Green Galaxy.
It might take a little extra sleuthing to find just the right green stone for your tastes, but the journey is worthwhile. If you’re keen for green, then no other color will do.
