When a large deposit of sodalite, which is named for its high sodium content, was discovered in Ontario, Canada in 1891, it became a popular choice to craft into ornaments and jewelry. Deep, deep blue and opaque, sodalite's appearance is similar to that of lapis lazuli. However, sodalite exchanges lapis lazuli's flecks of golden pyrite for veins of creamy white calcite. This combination of enchanting blues with streaks of bright whites results in a stone of otherworldly fantasy.
Sodalite: Blue of Sea, White of Waves
Sodalite's color palette reflects what some see as its metaphysical properties. That is, sodalite is said to balance the rational and irrational halves of the brain, bringing harmony to daily life.

Our sodalite jewelry showcases the entrancing, tranquil finish of this relatively "new" stone.

Sodalite Jewelry Care & Handling
Sodalite is of a moderate hardness (5.5-6 on the Mohs scale), so it should be worn with some care to prevent any scratches. Sunlight can cause some discoloration, so be sure to keep your sodalite jewelry tucked neatly away in your Ross-Simons presentation box after cleaning it with a soft cloth and warm water.
