Scolecite is a mineral member of the zeolite group that gets its name from the Greek word for "worm" because of the way that the borax bead that contains the mineral sometimes curls when heated by a blowpipe. Scolecite possesses pyro- and piezoelectric properties. Enormous scolecite crystals have been found in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. For gemstone use, faceted scolecite is rare.

I have bought several stones and am very happy with the price points, selection and speed of delivery. Sometimes the quality is not quite what I expected but given the prices, I am overall satisfied.
I have been ordering from GemSelect for at least 6 years. Every single order was perfect - every item was as advertized, in perfect condition and arrived well within the specified time frame. I have recommended them to several friends.
