Brazil Sodalite Heishi 6mm

Brazil Sodalite Heishi 6mm

Product Description

Sodalite was discovered in Greenland in 1806, but was not widely used as an ornamental stone until 1891 when large deposits were discovered in Ontario, Canada. On a visit to Ontario, Princess Patricia, a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, chose Sodalite as interior decoration for Marlborough House in England, hence the alternative name for this beautiful gemstone: Princess Blue.

This particular variation of sodalite contains a white speckling that defines it as Brazil sodalite.
