Deep blue coloured sodalite gemstone with subtle inclusions of orange calcite. This polished cabochon has been mounted as a ladies pendant in a fine sterling silver setting.
Sodalite is one of only a small number of natural minerals that's used solely for decorative purposes and for nothing else. Although generally known for being opaque, the very finest grade crystals are transparent but are very rare and highly sought after by collectors around the world. When used as a gemstone sodalite tends to be cut as a cabochon.
Known for its distinctive navy blue colour which can sometimes veer very subtly towards violet, stones are often included with white or orange calcite.
Despite its size this sodalite pendant is surprisingly light weight and could be worn on one of our fine, Italian made sterling silver snake chains. Buy both together and save £2 on the regular selling price of the chain.
