Natrolite is a zeolite mineral named for the Greek word natron, meaning "soda," due to the presence of sodium in the stone. Its range of colors include yellow, gray, and brown, to colorless. Occasionally, it is found in pale yellow to red hues. Crystals often grow in long, needle-like formations, and are especially prized by specimen collectors.
