OBJECT HISTORY: ZEOLITES
Zeolites are naturally occurring crystalline structures that come in many varieties of form and colour. They possess the unusual property of emitting steam when boiled, as discovered by a Swedish mineralogist in the 18th century, leading to the creation of their name – ‘zeo’ being Greek for ‘to boil’ and ‘lithos’ for stone.
I find zeolites to be a great addition to styling an open shelf or tablescape and a simple way to add a bit of mineral flair. If they appeal to your inner mineralogist, we have small zeolites and large zeolites available in store. Take a lucky dip – each one has its own character, structure and colouring!
