History and Uses
The name Stilbite is derived from the Greek word “stilbein” meaning to shine, because of the pearly lustre of this crystal. In Germany, it is referred to as Desmine (“a bundle”). It was the original name given to this stone in 1818, when it was discovered it was a different mineral from Heulandite. It is usually colourless or white, but can also be yellow, brown, pink, salmon, orange, red, green, blue or black.
Stilbite is a zeolite mineral, a sodium calcium hydrous aluminium silicate with a hardness of 3.5 – 4. It forms in cavities in lava and is often found with Heulandite and Apophyllite. It is found in Poona, India, Iceland, the Faeroe Islands and Scotland.
