This Scolecite heart stone marbled white, cream, and some grey, gives it a soft look. It almost looks like a marshmallow if it was not for it being polished and shiny.
Scolecite’s unique structure has made it a favourite among geologists! It forms in clusters of sharp, prismatic, “needle-like” points, which often radiate outward from a source, or, alternatively, criss-cross with each other to form sculptures that are truly a natural art form.
There is no other crystal in the world that shares Scolecite’s exact formation, making it highly distinctive and unique for both aesthetic and crystological purposes. When sanded and polished into “tumble stone” form, the streaks of these needles remain visible.
If the stone was to be cracked in half, they would reappear – that is to say, even a smooth scolecite stone is not solid inside.
Measurement are approximately: This little heart stone is 1.5 inches in width and 1.5 inches tall.
NOTE: You might recieve the exact stone that you see in the picture but one similar.
