Take your pick between having your own smoothly tumbled sodalite stone or choosing one that is raw, rough and natural!
Found in places like Greenland, Ontario and British Colombia Canada, Maine, Arkansas, Namibia and Russia, sodalite is formed in igneous rocks that crystalized from sodium-rich magmas -- hence the name sodalite. Sodalite is part of the feldspathoids mineral group, which are rare aluminosilicate minerals containing large quantities of sodium, potassium or calcium. Because blue rocks are relatively unheard of in nature, whenever a natural blue stone is discovered it already is worth a fair amount of money. However, sodalite is one of the few blue minerals that still has a reasonable price.
This beautifully blue mineral has been used for ornamental pieces, sculptural material, as a gemstone, and even as an architectural stone. But because of its incredible variation from specimen to specimen, sodalite is not commonly used in jewelry as there is no consistent appearance. This, however, makes for each bead, pendant, earring, and cabochon to be one-of-a-kind and sought after for that reason.
Metaphysical Meaning and Healing Properties: Sodalite is a stone of confidence that will assist with finding emotional balance and letting go of worries, anxieties and stresses of everyday life. It's a great stone to keep with you for public speaking (and all communication) and easing daily tasks. This stone stimulates the fifth chakra (throat chakra) and sixth chakra (third eye chakra), encouraging the use of logic and intuition instead of emotion. One will find a magnification of psychic abilities without becoming egotistic or obsessed with them. Sodalite is believed to calm anxiety attacks and fears, regulate blood pressure, balance metabolism, ease water retention, stabilize PMS and cramps, and quell headaches.
