The blue color of sodalite is considered particularly appealing. The beautiful gemstone rises to the surface from the earth's interior through the power of volcanoes and was first described in Greenland in the 19th century. Today it is increasingly mined in Canada's mineral capital Bancroft and is considered the national stone of Canada. In the North American country, the English Princess Margaret, sister of the reigning Queen, had first contact with the appealing sodalite and was so enthusiastic that she had her mansion Marlborough House in Westminster decorated with the blue gemstone.
Sodalite: Traditional Use and Importance
In ancient times, sodalite was considered by the Greeks to be a coveted protective stone. It has also been revered as a stone of artists and musicians since ancient Roman times. Traditionally, sodalite is associated with wisdom, because the beautiful stone is said to have a positive effect on concentration. He should be able to clear thoughts and alleviate helplessness and helplessness. In everyday life, he can give courage and use his strength to create a balanced inner balance.

Sodalite: color and transparency
The opaque sodalite has a strong blue base color, which is traversed by white veins. The basic blue can be either lighter or very intense and appear up to a deep violet blue. A real sodalite can be recognized by its strong fluorescence, which turns a striking orange-red when exposed to UV light. Furthermore, the blue gem shows an interesting phosphorescence: if it was previously illuminated, it glows yellow for a while in the dark.
Sodalite: cleanse, discharge and charge
We recommend weekly cleaning and energetic discharge for the sodalite, which should take place under lukewarm, running water. In order to protect the material of the stone, it should never be washed or boiled too hot. Sodalite chains can be discharged through Hematite stones. The powerful mountain crystal is suitable for charging the blue gemstone.
