Sodalite is a blue to blue-violet mineral that is commonly found in igneous rocks and is a member of the Feldspathoid mineral family. It is a complex mineral made up of sodium, aluminum, silicon, and chlorine. Sodalite's blue color is due to the presence of the mineral component called lazurite.
The name Sodalite is derived from the Latin word “soda,” which means “salt,” and the Greek word “lithos,” which means “stone.” The name was inspired by the sodium-rich compounds found within the crystal structure.
Sodalite falls on the Mohs scale of mineral hardness with a hardness rating of 5.5 to 6. Sodalite's hardness makes it suitable for various crystal jewelry applications, such as beads, cabochons, and carved figurines. However, it is important to handle sodalite with care to avoid scratching or damaging its surface.
