Fluorite with Scolecite “Pebbles”
Weighs about 1-2+lbs
Colors and size may slightly vary due to the handcrafted nature of this item. I chose these rainbow fluorite pebbles or “palm pillows” for their beautiful scolecite inclusions that inspire thoughts of flowers in bloom.
Fluorite is deposited in veins by hydrothermal processes. In these rocks it often occurs as a gangue mineral associated with metallic ores. Fluorite is also found in the fractures and cavities of some limestones and dolomites. It is a very common rock-forming mineral found in many parts of the world. In the mining industry, fluorite is often called "fluorspar."
Scolecite is a tectosilicate in the zeolite family and it’s color ranges from white to salmon and mint green. It grows in needle like sprays frequently accompanied by stilbite.
