These royal blue sodalite tumbled stones are beautifully polished and quite distinctive yet this mineral is often mistaken for lapis lazuli. As well as being used in conjunction with alternative therapies such as crystal healing, sodalite is often highly sought after by mineral collectors. Stones can also be found with a distinctive splash of orange colour and the finer grades of both varieties are popular for lapidary purposes.
Sodalite which takes its name from its high sodium content is a light weight, affordable mineral that's used almost exclusively for ornamental purposes. It's graded 5½ to 6 on Mohs scale of mineral hardness which makes it quite durable but that said, it's also brittle which can make cutting the stone quite difficult.
As with all crystals, rocks and minerals there are different grades and when buying tumbled stones for our collection, we try to always choose AAA grade whenever it's available. The difference between a lower and more superior grade of sodalite is easy to see and these stones definitely speak for themselves.
Our sodalite tumbled stones vary in size from small to medium, approximate weights and measurements are given below. When making your selection from the drop down list should you choose to purchase 5 or 10 pieces there is a possibility you may be charged slightly more for postage than we end up paying because of the difference in weight of individual stones.
