Scolecite is rarely found in tumbled form, as you lose a lot of the material in the tumbling process. This then pushes the price up. It is usually white but comes with pink hues, depending on where in the world it is from.

Scolecite comes from the Greek word ‘skōlēk’ meaning ‘worm’. The name refers to the way the stone behaves when heated with a blowpipe. When exposed to the extreme heat, it curls up just like a worm! The best way to describe scolecite is as ‘hydrous calcium aluminum silicate’. It is part of the zeolite mineral family. It is one of many secondary minerals which form within the cavities of basalt, granite and syenite. Scolecite forms long, thin prismatic crystals or needles near one another. These needles fuse as they grow and can only be differentiated when polished.

Enhances heart energies, encourages expression of love. It brings like-minded people together and promotes harmony. Scolecite promotes inner transformation and helping one understand their true identity and spiritual purpose in life. Scolecite has an exceptionally peaceful and high vibration energy. Its gracious yet potent energies unblock and balances our heart and crown chakras, helping us to step into our Highest Self and act for the Highest Good. Scolecite expands our perspective and urges us to bring peace to this world and to ease the suffering of all beings, placed in your path. It elevates our thought patterns to our greater existence, helping us to view ourselves not only as humans in this single lifetime, but as spiritual entities that have existed since the beginning of time and will continue to exist for eternity. Scolecite deepens meditation and un-hinders our prayers. It also aids us to hear the wise counsel of Spirit, our spirit guides, and angels.

Scolecite has an energy that many describe as ‘nurturing’. Perhaps it’s because of the self-love aspect, but it can also refer to its ability to bring its user inner peace. Scolecite is great for people with emotional turmoil that affects the way they form relationships with other people. It opens the heart up to love in a way that envelops everyone around you, and not just a lover. Scolecite is a stone of non-judgment and compassion. It encourages tolerance of others and gives them the platform to express themselves freely. Those around you will feel comfortable being themselves and supported.

Scolecite helps with mental health conditions, particularly depression and anxiety. It helps those feeling drained to feel nurtured, loved and energized, which promotes both mental and physical healing. Scolecite is a great stone for insomnia as it puts the mind at ease and suppresses the underlying cause of sleeplessness. It also helps with productive and efficient thought patterns and wards off counterproductive thoughts.

If you are lucky enough to be in possession of a tumble, keep it with you always.
