Historical Origins

The name "sodalite" draws inspiration from the Greek term "sodium," alluding to its sodium content. Discovered in 1811 after sizeable deposits were unearthed in Greenland. In 1891, abundant reserves in Ontario, Canada, propelled its significance. Today, sodalite holds a special place as the state gemstone of Nunavut, Canada. Its journey from ancient Greece's belief in its intelligence-boosting properties to its modern links with logic, mental clarity, and truth by crystal healers, highlights its enduring allure.

Sodalite is known for its cubic structure and captivating royal blue hues, where distinct white calcite streaks often enhance its appearance. A fun experiment you can try at home involves checking if your Sodalite exhibits fluorescence under UV light, a trait attributed to specific calcite properties. This phenomenon results in a vivid orange glow in response to ultraviolet radiation.

Sodalite deposits span across various regions, including Afghanistan, Brazil, Greenland, Canada as well as locations with the United States like Maine and Arkansas.
