Zeolite was first discovered in 1756 by Axel Fredrik Cronstedt a Swedish mineralogist. He states the name derives from the Greek word "zeo" which translates "to boil" and the Greek word "lithos" which translates to "stone." Zeolites are formed where volcanic rocks and ash react due to alkaline groundwater. Zeolites that are found in nature the majority of the time are never pure. They are often times found combined with other minerals such as quartz, metal, and even other Zeolites.

Zeolites are found to be utilized in many different ways. In fact, Zeolites can be domestically and commercially used as a form of water purification as well as water softening. It has also been found that Zeolites have aided in helping silver naturally emit light. Zeolites have been utilized as storage for harvested solar heat, but the largest and most common use of Zeolite is located in the laundry detergent market.

Zeolite can be found in various locations scattered around the world. They can be found in China, Japan, South Korea, Turkey, the United States, Jordan, and Slovakia. In fact, the world’s top producer of Zeolites is China, with South Korea and Japan making a close second.

In the metaphysical world, Zeolite is believed to aid in the ability to overcome self-judgment. It is also said that Zeolites contain the ability to foster compassion and are a stone of both gentleness and kindness.
