Sodalite is a silicate mineral with a high density of sodium, hence its name. It only rarely forms as crystals and is mainly found in massive deposits, which means that most sodalite is cut and polished into tools or other rounded forms, including wands, palm and tumbled stones. Its colour is primarily blue, in shades ranging from royal blue through to deep indigo / black, and it is often found in association with white calcite and sometimes quartz. A new find also includes hematite, resulting in a very powerful mix of orange and blue.
Sodalite is a reliable workhorse and sometimes rather overlooked! An excellent stone for use at the 3rd eye chakra (deeper shades) and throat chakra (lighter shades). It enhances communication on many levels, but its solidity and depths make it especially useful for deeper communion and dialogue with the Inner Self. For me this stone also resonates with the Archaeon Michael energies, and has a sense of protection and shielding or cloaking about it. This makes it useful also for journeying, especially when that is aimed at seeking information, answers, or fundamental Truths.
When the sodalite contains a high calcite or quartz content the energies are lightened and enhanced. Additionally white calcite helps to gently clear any blocks encountered and brings clarity and calm through its full spectrum of white Light.
When the sodalite contains hematite I feel the metal of Michael's sword, which gives it the potential to help you find and ground your own Truths, through separating them from false beliefs or understandings that have been given to or imposed upon you by others; and by dissolving away whatever might be veiling or concealing the reality from you.
