Zeolites are a family of over 50 different related minerals. They form where volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater, such as shallow marine basins, and take thousands to millions of years to form. Natural Zeolites and rarely pure and usually contain a combination of minerals and quartz on a matrix.
Axel Fredrik Cronstedt, a mineralogist from Sweden, named “Zeolites” in 1756 after 2 Greek words – ζέω (zéō) meaning "to boil" and λίθος (líthos) meaning "stone". He discovered that when Stilbite was rapidly heated, it produced large amounts of steam from water that had been previously absorbed by the mineral.
From a collector’s perspective, Zeolites are some of the most beautiful mineral specimens there are.
