Introduction

Scolecite is a powerful rebalancing stone, especially for people who have spent a large amount of time in high-energy environments. In Chinese philosophy, scolecite is associated with Yin energy, in contrast to Yang energy. Yang energy is outward-focussed, whereas Yin energy is inward-focussed, and promotes self-love and self-healing. If you have spent a significant amount of time in Yang environments, such as high-powered work environments or social events, you may need a good dose of the Yin energy of a stone like scolecite to “recharge.” This is especially important for people who are introverted – that is, who gain their energy from being alone. Scolecite will speed up the recharging process, helping you gather your energy and calm yourself so that you are focussed and ready for your next social or Yang-focussed activities. Note, however, that extroverts need some reflective, self-focussed recharging time sometimes too, so scolecite isn’t wasted on them! Scolecite can help with spiritual and emotional peace of mind, helping you to develop feelings of connection with a higher power and confidence in your relationship with Him or It. This is a very comforting feeling for many, many people, but one that is often scoffed at in our modern society. Scolecite can help you move past the derision of your peers and realize that, if these feelings will have measurable, positive benefits for you, they are worth pursuing. The vibrations of scolecite stones are similar to the comforting, warm feeling of love that you experience with people who you have cared about and shared your life with for a long time. It is a soothing and energizing stone at the same time, inspiring you towards being a better self while also giving you feelings of comfort with your own self, as you are now. It will effectively prepare you to deal with potential problems, but not allow you to fixate on these problems, and instead allow you to focus your mind on the positive aspects of your life as you currently experience it – and there will always be positive aspects of your life as you currently experience it!



History

White Scolecite is a rare variety of zeolite, a silicate mineral that forms in cavities and fissures within pre-existing rocks. It has been found in India, Australia, and the United States. The color ranges from white to pinkish or yellowish shades depending on its impurities. Scolecite was first described by Kaiserstuhl in Baden-Württemberg in 1813, who noted it had formed along with quartz crystals in some geological formations. Since then, it has become popular among gemstone collectors for its unusual coloring and interesting crystal shapes.

Scolecite is a relatively “new” stone to the metaphysical world and so its properties are still being explored. It was not included in any of the old lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers. Scolecite name comes from the Greek skolek meaning “worm” because of the way it reacts to the blowpipe test, one of the more complex ways geologists identify minerals. Essentially, a fragment of a mineral is placed in the cavity of a charcoal block and a blowpipe is used to send a horizontal flame across it. Each mineral reacts in a different way. Sometimes the color of the mineral changes, sometimes the color of the charcoal. Sometimes the mineral will curl into a bead, or give off fumes or even volatilize and disappear completely! In the case of Scolecite, it shoots out small worm-like projections.

Scolecite has an exceptionally peaceful, high vibration energy. It gently but powerfully opens our heart and crown, helping us to step into our Highest Self and act for the Highest Good.

It opens our eyes 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 forever. Scolecite deepens meditation and strengthens our prayers, and helps us to hear the wise counsel of our spirit guides and angels.


Mental Healing Properties

Scolecite brings peace of mind. It helps us to see the “big picture” and to view the world from a compassionate perspective. Scolecite invites us to explore our own prejudices and feelings of discomfort, looking at these beliefs and feelings in non-judgement and then releasing them so they no longer hold us back from the rest of humanity. Scolecite helps us to see all of mankind as our own dear family and to want to help each individual find joy and peace. It helps us to be in better control of our own lives, and moving forward towards whatever reality we most want to create.

Physical Healing Properties

Scolecite is recommended when we are exploring how our feelings are connected to our brain chemistry and the needs of our physical body.  It reminds us that sometimes our negative feelings accurately reflect what is going on around us.  But, other times, our feelings are a clue for what’s happening inside us.  For example, we may be feeling depressed because of a sad situation, or we might be feeling bad because our serotonin levels have gotten too low.  Or perhaps we feel anxious, but that emotion is tied to dehydration.  Scolecite helps us to gently check in with ourselves and see if our emotions match the outside or the inside.  If we tend to jump to conclusions or catastrophes, this sweet stone kindly redirects our thoughts in a more productive direction.  Scolecite is a particularly good stone for anyone suffering from insomnia or whose mental state tends to worse at night.



Using Scolecite

Place it somewhere where it is easily seen every time you enter. Natural scolecite formations make great decorations, but a well-placed tumble stone is just as good. By placing it in this sort of room, you will become primed for introspection every time you enter. It will also ward off any anxieties or negative thoughts that might disrupt your thinking patterns while you are in this room. This will make it easier to develop your creative and innovative mind while you are in the room, and it will prevent you from becoming bogged down with unnecessary fears. Even if this is a room that you usually work in, like an office, or dread going into, you may find that a single piece of scolecite is enough to completely change the energy of the room, and you may actually come to enjoy spending time in it. You may feel calmer, comforted, and generally at ease every time you enter, without even knowing why!
