It is a slightly soft material (5.5 to 6 on the Mohs scale) with a relatively low density. Sodalite is found in Brazil, Greenland, India, Canada, the USA (Montana), Namibia and Russia.
I have always been skeptical of ordering fine items online for fear of disappointment. Today, Thursday April 26, I received the blue sapphire which I ordered on Monday, April 23. Not only was I impressed with the rapid delivery of my sapphire, but I was very pleased with the way the stone was packaged and protected. The sapphire itself was far better quality than I had anticipated and it will make a beautiful centerpiece for the ring I'm having made. Thanks so much for the great experience...
Excellent. Items were gorgeous and exactly as pictured. Ordered on Monday, rec'd. Thursday AM !! I liked the website and the details of the items. It was an easy, fast and clean transaction. Admitting here that I have purchased from GemsTV and found that some gems ordered were less than advertised. Now I am happy that I can see an exact picture of the item I am to receive.
