I purchased this polished serpentinite from a stand at the Festival of Geology so I don’t know any details about its origin. However, it resembles the Cornish serpentinite which was featured on the first day of the Geo Advent Calendar, so I think this one might come from Cornwall. This English county is well-known for its vibrant red and black serpentinites which are commonly carved into beautiful ornaments.
