Product Description

When talking to Jim Lytell Marble and Stone Restoration, or your local marble restoration company, it is valuable to have some information about your serpentine stone floor. Your serpentine stone floor is a siliceous form of igneous rock that has been metamorphosed into a different form. It is often mistaken for marble, most commonly mistaken are green in color but not all green marbles are serpentine. Serpentine is actually magnesium-silicate based as opposed to marble being calcite based. Rocks composed predominantly of such minerals are correctly called “serpentinites”, and are commercially sold as a marble because they can be polished. Usually serpentinite contains iron in the form of magnetite, which gives it a dark color. It is also composed of many other minerals called serpentine group minerals. Serpentines are generally dark green in color with markings of white, light green, or black. Serpentine exhibits greater acid resistance and abrasion resistance than does a true marble. These properties make serpentine a popular choice for both kitchen counter and exterior applications. Serpentine is very sensitive to water before sealing and should always be sealed first before grouting to prevent spalling. Also never to be installed with water based mortars, as spalling, flaking, peeling, and pitting on its surface will occur. Epoxy or acrylic polymer is recommended in the place of water to the thinset. Serpentine is found in China, Italy, USA, England, New Zealand, and Korea.
