New jade alludes to its similarity to Jade. It is actually the gem mineral ‘Serpentine’. Serpentine derives its name from the Latin word ‘Serpentis’ meaning snake like, referring to the resemblance these stones have to snake skin. While this name was almost certainly chosen because of its green color, it reflects many ideas about the serpentine stone’s qualities that date back to the ancient world.
