    In fact, serpentine barrens contain more narrow endemic plants than any other serpentine natural community in the Klamath-Siskiyou region; and as such, the most rare plants (Jimerson, et. al. ). Represented plant genera associated with the harshest of serpentine communities include Arabis, Eriogonum, Sedum, and Streptanthus. Just like its yellowish-green color that reflects the new growth of a forest, the Serpentine inspires you to start fresh, helping to clear away any psychic debris left over from the past. The Serpentine crystal reminds us that life is a series of choices, so choose wisely and always follow your bliss.

      Some plants, called serpentine indicators, are mostly, but not strictly, confined to serpentine. Purple mouse-ears is an example. Its proud little form often appears on what looks like bare rock. It blooms from February to April, but only one flower at a time, each lasting only a day or two. The shallow soils and sparse vegetation lead to elevated soil temperatures[2]and dry conditions.[1] Due to their ultramafic origin, serpentine soils also suffer from a low calcium-to-magnesium ratio and lack many essential nutrients such as nitrogen(N), phosphorus(P), and potassium(K).

    Serpentine is a very common mineral, and is found in abundance worldwide. Some famous localities include The Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall, England (the type locality of Lizardite; the Antigorio Valley, Piedmont, Italy (the type locality of Antigorite); and Mount Olympus, Jeffery Asbestos Mine in Richmond Co., Quebec, is the one of the most productive asbestos mines, providing great.   Here are the first official photos of the 10th Serpentine Gallery Pavilion in Kensington Gardens, London, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel.
