nz yank Posted May 2, 2010 Report Share Posted May 2, 2010 Hi all I work in jade and bowenite, I know that bowenite is also referred to as serpentine. I see James K posted photos of some of his work in black serpentine. So my questing is the bowenite I work 90% of the time it is see thought in a lot of different ranges of a yellowish green to a brilliant blue with black specs through it. So other out there who work this stone does it have the same see through as what I have been working? I would like to know where else this same type is through out the world. I have done some research but only seem to find other place out side of New Zealand that have the black type serpentine you can see through. Now some of the photos James K listed looks the same as the stone I work can you see through it? Cheers all terry Oh yes also is Bowenite just a gem quality serpentine or a completely different stone? I get conflicting info on it from people I have talked to and read? I have attached 2 photos same piece one is backlite to show color I am talking about. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
