Scapolite's name is derived from Greek words meaning "rod" or "shaft" and "stone," which describes the shape of its crystals. This is a helpful stone for those who work with computers, constantly answer the phone or are desk-bound as it absorbs and disperses electromagnetic emissions from electrical equipment. Scapolite is a useful stone for conscious journeys through your dreams and the astral plane. It can assist you in connecting more easily with the sources of higher guidance, including angels, spirit guides and your own higher self consciousness. Scapolite stimulates your will and your ability to take action in the world. This pendulum is beautifully made and has a ball at the end to hold onto.
