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.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
