#WednesdayWonders – #Gemstones #Sodalite

Welcome to another stroll through the world of Gemstones!

Today’s spotlight is on a beautiful blue stone, Sodalite.

I absolutely love this stone and have the three shown above. I keep one by my bedside and often will slip one under my pillow. I also keep one next to my computer.

Sodalite was first discovered by Europeans in 1811 in Greenland but has been traced as far back as 2000 B.C. near Lima where it was used for trade among the Caral people.

It is associated with the throat chakra and brings order and calmness to the mind. It unites logic with intuition and opens spiritual perception, allowing for downloads from the higher mind to the physical level. It stimulates the pineal gland and third eye which deepens meditation. Sodalite clears electromagnetic pollution which is why I keep one next to my computer.

This stone is particularly helpful with group work, as it brings harmony and solidarity of purpose. It can help bring about emotional balance and ward off panic attacks.

On a physical level, Sodalite balances the metabolism, overcomes calcium deficiencies and cleanses the lymphatic system and organs which boosts the immune system.

It’s easy to find different jewelry pieces made from Sodalite and it is an inexpensive stone. It is not recommended that Sodalite be used to make an elixir as it contains traces of aluminum and is potentially toxic if taken internally.

Sodalite is often confused with or sold as Lapis Lazuli. But there are several distinct differences and qualities between the two, including the price. It’s always best to buy from a reputable dealer.

Do you have any Sodalite? If so, how do you use it? I’d love to know.

    Hi guys, sorry this is a day late, Jan has some grand info on Sodalite, I’m curious, any of you have experience with this stone?
    As I was reading, I became overcome with a desire to buy a chain with a pendent made of Sodalite for a friend of mine.

    1. Thank you for your comment, Jacqui.l I don’t know what DDG is, but Sodalite is not exactly a rare stone and is usually not expensive. But it is often confused with Lapis Lazuli, which is expensive and hard to come by. I appreciate you stopping by!

  2. Jan, I don’t have any Sodalite but I’ll keep any eye out for it. Maybe that little shop I just discovered here would have some. It is very pretty. I noticed a little bit of pink in the picture of each of yours. Maybe it’s the lighting though. Love the properties. Love you, sister.

    1. It has to be the lighting because there is no pink in these stones. It’s mostly blues and grays, but I agree, so pretty. Yes, you can check at your newly found little shop. It shouldn’t be expensive. Thank you for stopping by! Love you!
