SODALITE is a chloric sodium aluminum silicate with an isometric crystal system and a hardness of 5.5 to 6. The name refers to its sodium content. The largest Sodalite deposit is in Bahia, Brazil.
Sodalite is a stone of insight, helping one penetrate paradox and contradiction in order to form a new synthesis of thought. It enhances the mental powers of analysis, intuition, observation and creativity and is stimulating to one’s latent genius. It facilitates self- discipline, efficiency, organization and structure in research and other mental pursuits.
Sodalite provides insight into the self and a dispassionate assessment of one’s motivations, strengths, weaknesses, desires, gifts and patterns of personal destiny. It can reinforce one’s “witness” consciousness, and it brings a kind of stubborn courage into oneself, helping one stay on the Path during hard times. It stimulates psychic vision and multi-leveled understanding, sparking the “aha !” moments where in one sees the pattern that connects the inner and outer worlds.
Sodalite can aid astrologers, numerologists, tarot readers and all those who translate the archetypal patterns revealed in oracles.
Sodalite is a rich royal blue tectosilicate mineral widely enjoyed as an ornamental gemstone. Although massive sodalite samples are opaque, crystals are usually transparent to translucent.
Discovered in 1811 in the Ilimaussaq intrusive complex in Greenland, sodalite did not become important as an ornamental stone until 1891 when vast deposits of fine material were discovered in Ontario, Canada.
