Sodalite Quick Notes

It’s a beautiful blue stone with a waxy luster that sometimes appear opaque due to the inclusions when the rock was being formed. Mainly, you will find calcite inclusions, which gives it the white spots/streaks you see. Aside from a light royal blue color, it can look as deep as a purple; however, the most common color is blue. Depending on where the stone is mined, the colors can vary. For instance, sodalite coming from Greenland can be more of a grey color, whereas sodalite found in Canada can be more a finer grade, which produces a deeper blue color.
