I have a couple green rocks here in my house, I just want to know if they are really serpentinite, because when I search on Google, the site only shows the serpentinite without magnetite.

I'm going upload the picture.

I would say that it's a chlorite mica schist, very similar to what is found in Jonesville, Vermont, I think.

Vic,
I agree. Here's piece that was collected in 1965 from the Carlton Quarry in Chester, Vermont for comparison.
