Sodalite is one of the lesser-known Canadian gemstones. It occurs in many locations throughout Canada, including near Bancroft, Ontario, in the Ice River Valley, and Kicking Horse River areas of British Columbia. Sodalite is usually found in a massive formation, and occurs in white, blue, violet and pink colors. Whether your sodalite is solid blue or mixed with other colors, it is sure to be a stone of great beauty and character. The blue color is the most recognized color of sodalite in the gem trade. Sodalite is a component of the better known stone lapis lazuli and is sometimes mistaken for lapis because of the closeness of the blue colors.
Sodalite is said to enhance communication and aid in creative expression. Some believe sodalite may help with the assimilation of fluids, and may help with excess weight and high blood pressure.
