Healing Properties of Scheelite Lace
Spiritual: Scheelite Lace is a powerful spiritual tool for dedicated practitioners. It helps us to stay grounded during high spiritual work and not get overwhelmed or lose our focus. For astral travelers, Scheelite Lace helps us to reach our destination quickly and to remember what we learned when we return. It is phenomenal for all kinds of chakra work. It clears and actives all the chakras and can be use to protect us from future blocks and drains. It also helps us to better understand what each chakra needs, in the short term and long term, in order for us to thrive. Scheelite Lace is also a wonderful manifestation tool, especially when we need to dream new dreams or do the impossible. It reminds us that we are miracle makers and that the Divine happily helps those who help themselves. Scheelite Lace is attuned to ALL the Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Aries, Cancer, and Libra. It is connected to the Elements of Earth and Wind and vibrates to the numbers 3, 5 and 8
Emotional: Scheelite Lace offers powerful lessons in emotional intelligence. It helps us to accept reality for what it is and to maintain a calm dignity. It can connect the person we are right now, with the Higher Self that we’d like to be. But it also helps us trust that who we are right now is good enough and that perfection is not required. Scheelite Lace shakes off our doubts, fears, resentment and tendency towards melodrama. It encourages us to forgive and to be charitable. It is especially comforting during sad times when we might find ourselves questioning “why me, why now, why did this happen?” When we feel betrayed by life’s cold unfairness, Scheelite Lace asks us to trust that things happen for a reason, even if we don’t understand it. It asks us to try to see the silver-lining and to use our sad experiences to become more compassionate and wise. Scheelite Lace releases fear and scarcity-based thinking and helps us to believe that we will be protected and provided for in the future. It teaches compassion and encourages us to show our appreciation whenever good things happen.
Mental: Scheelite Lace guides us away from arrogant and ego-driven thinking. It invites us to engage in deep thought and be willing to honestly consider new ideas. It helps us to organize our thoughts and finish projects, while also stimulating original thinking. Scheelite Lace encourages us to be thoughtful and ethical in all the ways we interact with the world around us. It reduces greed and can helps us to change our beliefs about money, work, success, respect and what has true value. Scheelite Lace encourages humility and reminds us that no work is “beneath” us. It teaches us to work with reverence and love. Scheelite Lace helps us to grasp the Big Picture of whatever topic has captured our attention, making it an excellent tool for businessmen, scientists and students of the humanities.
Physical: Scheelite Lace is used by metaphysical healers to treat the lower half of the body, including the feet, legs, the lower back and the male reproductive system. It is also believed to heal disorders associated with the lungs and the adrenal glands. Scheelite Lace is also said to expose and heal the underlying emotional issues that are behind eating disorders and substance abuse. It is used by yogis for grounding and to improve balance postures.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Rock Family: Scheelite Lace is not a mineral, but rather a rock. An easy way to understand the difference is that rocks are like cookies and minerals are ingredients like flour or sugar. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In this case, it is a metamorphic rock that combines Calcite (white), Dolomite (blue) and Scheellite (yellow). Calcite and Dolomite are common carbonite minerals, which are most commonly white but can take on bright colors including blue and yellow. Despite the name, this stone does not appear to contain any actual Scheelite. For more information, please see the History tab
Formation: Scheelite Lace was formed by metamorophic processes where there are unequal high pressures. The strongest pressure forces the minerals in the original rock to reorient themselves into long, flat lines that run perpendicular to the pressure direction. This creates a striped look.
Mining: Little is known about Scheelite Lace mining, but both Calcite and Dolomite are industrially-mined in limestone and marble quarries.
Enhancements: All Schellite Lace are completely natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting and polishing.
Synonyms: Lapis Lace Onyx, Blue Schellite. Please see the History tab for more information.
History of Scheelite Lace
Scheelite Lace is a recent addition to the metaphysical world and there is quite a bit of confusion and misinformation circulating about it. It was first offered on the open market in the late spring of 2014. At that time, it was called Lapis Lace Onyx, in honor of its bright blue stripes. However, since this stone contains neither Lapis nor Onyx, the name is misleading and so is rarely used today.
The stone has also been sold as Blue Scheelite since 2014, which is problematic for a different reason. Scheelite is a white, yellow or brown mineral. It may occasionally have a greenish tint, but there is no scientific evidence to suggest that Scheelite can be bright blue under natural light. But, Scheelite is a highly fluorescent mineral which glows bright blue under short wave light. It is possible that some sellers have confused the fluorescent quality with the natural appearance. To be clear, there is no such thing as naturally occurring Blue Scheelite.
Nevertheless, this stone is still frequently sold as “Blue Scheelite” by wholesalers and retail stores alike. Sometimes sellers will claim the entire stone is blue and white Scheelite, while others mention the presence of Calcite and/or Dolomite. But, there is no consistency about whether the blue stripes are said to be Calcite, Dolomite or Scheelite, all three seem to be equal contenders. Some sources even suggest the stone is composed only of Calcite and Dolomite and there is no Scheelite at all. Annoyingly, information is always presented as though it were strictly factual rather than a guess.
It is a common practice for new healing stones to be introduced to the market without any scientific testing. Sellers who attempt to provide mineralogical information, are often guessing or repeating what their sources told them. Everyone trusting, but no one verifying. Years later, the stone may be formally tested at a lab and the findings may flatly contradict the original guesswork. Rather than admit the mistake, many sellers will double-down on the old claims. Since most sellers simply repeat or copy/paste information from others, it can be very difficult to sift the wheat from chaff, and to fact-check claims.
Two metaphysical sellers share intriguing stories about this stone’s name and origin which seem to ring true. According to an eBay seller, the man who originally found the Scheelite Lace deposit proclaimed it was Blue Scheelite. It was only after his passing, that the stone was formally tested and discovered to be a rare blue Dolomite banded with white Calcite. According to that eBay seller, there is no Scheelite in the stone at all, nevertheless that seller still uses the name “Blue Scheelite” in honor of the stone’s finder. Another metaphysical stone seller claims to have sent the stone away for testing personally. Her testing agreed that the white parts are Calcite and the blue parts are Dolomite, but the testing also showed that the yellow parts are Scheelite. According to her, the mine always knew the stone contained Scheelite, but never cared enough to find out which parts are Scheelite and simply allowed people to draw their own conclusions.
I have varified that there are Tungsten mines near Bursa, Turkey where this stone is mined. Scheelite is a common Tungsten ore mineral and so it is probable that the yellow parts on Scheelite Lace are indeed Scheelite. But further testing is needed. Moonrise Crystals is currently using the name Scheellite Lace for this stone. It is a less-common name, but is used by other sellers and seems to be the least problematic.

I first met the Turkish wholesaler in 2019. The previous year several customers had requested “Blue Scheelite” and so I had added it to my Wish List for the Tucson Gem Show. I had only done preliminary research on the stone, enough to know that it was found exclusively in Turkey and that the general consensus was that the blue stripes on the stone were Blue Scheelite. During the show, I spotted a small booth with a Turkish flag. They only had a few varieties of stone, but Scheelite Lace and Purple Jade were among them and it quickly became apparent that this booth only dealt in Turkish gemstones. Unfortunately, the wholesalers’ English wasn’t very good so conversation was difficult. They were used to buyers wanting to discuss quality, quantity and price. My questions about the sourcing were harder to convey.
Because I could at least verify a short supply chain within the same country, I chose to buy a small quantity of Scheelite Lace from this wholesaler. My intention was to do in-depth research before deciding whether or not to continue the relationship. In 2020, I finally had time to do the research. There is little information available about lapidary factories in Turkey, but it seems that basic safety conditions are followed. What concerns me is whether or not the lapidaries in Bursa employ Syrian refugees, a situation which is known to be exploitative in the garment factory industry. I will try to speak with this wholesaler again at the next opportunity, but unless better information about the mine and lapidary factory comes out, I am unlikely to purchase from this wholesaler again and will look for another source.
