Today we are going to learn a little about this crystal, called Sodalite. Many who see it do not identify it as a crystal, already describing it as stone.
Its chemical composition has sodium, sulfur, aluminum, silica with cobalt, calcium, zinc and traces of manganese as main base. In its hardness, it is on the 5-6 scale.
It originates in Africa, Brazil, Canada, India and the USA and it contains a lot of sodium, hence its name: Sodalite. Of course, there are also other legends that surround this crystal, but the most coherent would be this one of its composition.
Its colors range from royal blue to deep blue (dark), along with gray and black and white inclusions and sometimes with pyrite. Pyrite is known as fake gold or fools’ gold.
For the minerals nonprofessionals, it is normal to confuse sodalite with lapis lazuli and dumortierite.
In each place, Sodalite is seen in one way: in Africa: Protective crystal; in Ireland (Celtic peoples): as Crystal of the prophets; in China and Japan: Crystal of gratitude and peace; and in Greece: as Crystal of Wealth and Glamor.
This crystal or stone is the favorite for the sensitive ones, for it is seen as a rational and logical crystal, of great spirit openness, of easy communication with astral planes, meditation, telepathy and helping in the concentration on new ideas and creativity.
For the physical plane, it is used to treat throat, eyes, bladder infections and inflammations and it prevents allergies.
On the spiritual plane, this crystal aims to calm people with false merits and non-existent excess capacity and people with a tendency to verbal aggression. It is also widely used in alternative therapies for its power to soften obsessions.
