Sodalite is a rock-forming mineral best known for it's vibrant blue hues. Containing an abundant amount of calcium, sodium and potassium, Sodalite minerals often occur within igneous rocks and can be found within certain types of metamorphic rocks.
Named in 1811 by Thomas Thomson, Sodalite is found within alkili-rich, but silica-poor environments. Brought to the earth's surface through volcanic activity, Sodalite is largely found in igneous rocks. Sodalite was given its name due to the high amounts of sodium found within the stone, and is likely to smell like sulfur when fractured.
Sodalite is believed to enhance concentration and boost confidence. It is said to greatly improve rational thoughts and ideas, while also helping to reduce anxiety and panic attacks. With its calming energy, Sodalite is thought to reduce inflammation within the body and also reduce excess acid, while promoting the balance of the bodies natural pH levels.
