Scolecite are also found in “twinned” formations that create a “v” termination. Scolecite is both pyroelectric and piezoelectric. Scolecite’s hardness is rated at 5 to 5.5 on the Moh’s scale of mineral hardness. Scolecite color ranges from colorless to white, as well as, pale shades of pink, salmon, red, green and yellow. Scolecite was named from the Greek word, skolec, meaning “ worm” referring to its tendency to curl when heated in a blowpipe. Scolecite is transparent to opaque with a vitreous to pearly luster.
