Try searching for "serpentine tumbled" to see a wide range of colors and opacities.

I couldn't see any picture that looked green... but serpentine can be a beautiful pure green like a Grannie Smith apple, or it can be browns mixed with greens of various shades. Atlantasite is the very bright fresh green serpentine mixed with quite separate and very purple spots or blotches as inclusions... or it has been in every instance that i've seen it. Serpentine, on the other hand, is very much more ambiguous! :)
