A leaf at the top, the circle below is the seed.

"The leaf looks down to the seed with tenderness, like a mother looking down at her child."

Cobalt stone is the local Zimbabwean name given to this type of serpentine, which is typically a mixture of purple and green. It does not, as far as we know, contain any cobalt.
