Sodalite is a mysterious stone with deep colors. This stone evokes vision, understanding and courage.
Sodalite had the original etymological name "soda lithos". Soda means sodium and lithos means stone. By merging these two words it would be called sodium stone. Discovered in the 1800s, this stone was first used for ornament. Mainly mined in Africa and South America, it can also be found in Greenland.
