“Me, I'm waiting so patiently
Lying on the floor
I'm just trying to do this jigsaw puzzle
Before it rains anymore”

The History of Scolecite

The first recorded discovery of Scolecite dates back to 1813 in Germany and was named for the Greek word for “worm”.  This refers to the stone’s tendency to curl when heated. Scolecite, like Clear Quartz and Tourmaline, is pyroelectric and piezoelectric, meaning it gains an electrical charge through heat and pressure.

Scolecite can be found in very rare crystal forms in Iceland and a few parts of India but is commonly found in masses across the globe (including in Africa, Europe and the USA).


Recognising Scolecite

Usually growing in delicate needle like sprays, or larger, blade-like crystalline forms, Scolecite can occur in a myriad of colours from white or colourless to pink, salmon, red, purple or yellow.  Scolecite’s unique structure has made it a favourite among geologists!

Scolecite has a hardness of 5-5.5 on the Mohs scale.


What is Scolecite used for?

The gentle, yet powerful energy of mellow Scolecite makes for a powerful rebalancing stone, especially for people who spend a lot of time in high-energy environments.  It aids introverts in puzzling through growing and improving relationships, understanding and stabilising organisations and groups and just general “people-ing”, speeding up the recharging process.

Scolecite soothes and energises simultaneously, inspiring you towards being a better self while also giving you feelings of comfort with your own self, accepting you as you are now.  Holding a piece of Scolecite in your hand can provide a deep calming energy that even those first couple of shots of tequila can’t equal.

Helping clear the mind of fears and worries (especially those focussed on potential future events or past mistakes that insist on popping up at 11.30pm when you’re supposed to be up at six the next morning), Scolecite is a balm for your tired, pandemic-ed out soul.

Hide snow white Scolecite under your pillow at night to invite sweet lucid dreaming and help marshal the intense insights often lost in forgotten dreams.  This bad vibe buffer will allow the bearer to wake full of inner peace and sweet… Satisfaction.
