The mineral sodalite is named for its sodium content. As a gemstone, sodalite is usually blue, often with a violet tint, and frequently contains white veins of calcite. 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 not made a lot of purchases from GemSelect, but have been very satisfied with those that I have. The quality of the gems has been good, and I like the pictures provided of the actual gemstones being reviewed. I will certainly be back for more at another time.
