Scapolite is from the Greek words "scapos", which means rod, and lithos, which means stone. Natural Scapolite crystals often looks stick-like, hence the name.
Scapolite is a mineral group of marialite or meionite, only testing can determine the exact species.
Several names have been given to Scapolites in the past but have now been discarded: wernerite was the former group name, and dipyre and mizzonite were names for intermediate members of the group.
Marialite was named in 1866 by the German mineralogist vom Rath for his wife Maria.
Meionite was named in 1801 by French mineralogist Rene Just Hauy.
Scapolite's word is derived from the Greek word meion, meaning “less,” alluding to its pyramidal faces, which are less steep than those of vesuvianite, with which this mineral is sometimes confused.
