  • Scolecite

    Scolecite is found as radiating groups of slender, striated prismatic crystals and as more resilient, polished hand-held pieces. Growing primarily in India and Pakistan and infrequently in Iceland and the US, it is composed of hydrated calcium aluminum silicate. It is part of the zeolite mineral family and is found as colorless white, pink, salmon, red or green.

    Scolecite shows us the nature of our lives and of the universe. Because it can intensify flow, it is can make more light available. Unlike other light crystals, Scolecite’s energy when first held, is smooth and rather gentle… it is one of the most seemingly subtle crystals to be encountered.

    Scolecite supports the heart in transforming old fears into trust, old beliefs into true remembrance, and permanently bringing love into your life. Scolecite shows you the separate paths available for each person and the numerous choices available to you, while still holding each person or experience within one solid base.

    You can place Scolecite by your bedside for more directional dreams and astral projection. It will help lull you to sleep and also activate your dream-space. The key word here is balance; use Scolecite for opening yourself up to greater creative and intuitive abilities while acclimating to greater responsibility for the outcome of events. Scolecite will help your transformation – make sure you are prepared for the result. Looking innocent and innocuous, this mineral is anything but. It is a very powerful mineral holding the memory of original light. It has the ability to work with most other minerals to accelerate and magnify their own natural effect.

    Working with Green Calcite, it electrifies any blocked physical area, creating better flow in healing.

    Working with Amethyst, it will intensify amethyst’s cleansing affect for the sixth chakra, clearing out the tendrils of confusion left from an over active third chakra doubt and control issues.

    Working with Moldavite, it will create an enhanced opening of the brow chakra improving natural intuitive skills. (This last observation needs to be used with great caution, as it can create an over-activity of the brow chakra and lead to headaches. If you decide to try this, do so slowly and patiently.)

    Working with Clear Quartz, it directs the focus of any program you place into it, giving more direction and elevation.

    Placed with Selenite, Scolecite will become more directional and its intent will become softened.

    Scolecite and Danburite work together in opening the heart for the important dialogue with your higher self and your angels. You created this lifetime to travel in the vanguard of earthly transformation – the experiences will continue and you must be prepared to understand all of them when you remember the importance of your choices.

    Use Scolecite with Rose Quartz Crystals to open pathways of healing of akashic (or historical) heart memories. Healing the akasha is an important process for individuals and for those whose path is as a forerunner for planetary change.

    Scolecite with Green Apophyllite lifts heaviness around the heart, heals the heart chakra and creates a permanence of those healings.

    Scolecite improves the abilities of almost any stone you use it with. Experiment, but remember that Scolecite is very powerful regardless of its appearance.
