Stilbite

At one time Heulandite and Stilbite were considered to be identical minerals. After they were found to be two separate species, in 1818, the name desmine ("a bundle") was proposed for stilbite, and this name is still employed in Germany. The English name "stilbite" is from the Greek stilbein = to shine, because of the pearly luster of the faces. The crystals are thin tabulars that are typical for good quality Stilbite.

Stilbite is just so beautiful - they radiate a calm tranquil energy that lifts the atmosphere.
