Stilbite is a member of the zeolite group of minerals. It can form with calcium or sodium and gets its name from the Greek word stilbein ( to shine), referring to its pearly luster. It typically forms in tabular, flat crystals that are most commonly pink or salmon in color. It can be found in many areas of the world including Iceland, Nova Scotia, India, and the United States.

Stilbite is most commonly used for its soothing properties. It contains a "quiet" joy that helps calm anxiousness.
