What is Sodalite?

Sodalite is a tectosilicate mineral. It is part of the cubic crystal system and has a waxy luster. It is also part of the sodalite group with other stones like lazurite and hauyne.

The Sodalite Healing Crystal

Where the surf surges into a frothy broth of blue and white; this is the salt whipped wonder of Sodalite. The blue gemstone blurs the line between mineral and magic, this is not your usual semi-precious stone but something ripe and rare. Sodalite may not be as ancient as Lapis Lazuli or Blue Lace Agate, but it certainly doesn’t fall short of those fresh and fabulous healing vibes. In fact, thanks to its heady dark blue coloring, Sodalite is often mistaken for being a piece of Lapis Lazuli, but on closer look you can see the white veins that ripple beneath the surface, marking it out as something completely different.

But, far from being a stone of shipwrecks and bruised skies, Sodalite is every inch a smattering of salty calm.

This beautiful blue mineral was only discovered in the 19th century, picked up in the remote wilds of Greenland where lonely mountains puncture the sky and icy waters dazzle. Also found in the snows of Ontario Canada, you would think Sodalite prefers breezes that blow cold, but the gemstone is also mined in the depths of sultry Brazil, the fragrant shores of India, and the sand dune wilds of Namibia.

It’s a stone that reminds you to tap into those powerful instincts and to strike a balance between the head and the heart so you can always live in alignment with your truest self. For those who love to live a life aligned with their creative side, Sodalite is a stone that kindles the imagination and encourages artful expression.

Here are all the amazing benefits you can expect when you bring the healing energy of Sodalite into your soul…

Physical Healing Properties

Sodalite is generous when it comes to upping your physical prowess. For starters, it’s a throat chakra stone making it an exceptional tool when it comes to boosting communication. As it enhances self-esteem and heightens your inner trust, it invites you to stop being afraid to use your voice and to stop second-guessing your own intuition.

If you tend to suffer from throat problems, if you are dealing with vocal cord damage and if you are struggling with hoarseness or other larynx issues, Sodalite soothes all issues connected to the throat so you can speak your truth and sing like a bird. It’s also a great gemstone for strengthening the immune system, cooling fever, lowering blood pressure, and encouraging the body to soak up all the fluids it needs, not to mention lending a healing hand when it comes to the lymphatic system.

Emotional Healing Properties

Logic, truth and inner peace pave the way for wonderful emotional wellbeing with the Sodalite stone. Being connected to the heart means that all those who sport Sodalite can feel the calming touch of this crystal. When the clouds of the mind are cleared away, this leaves time and space for logical thinking and problem solving that doesn’t come from a pit of despair. Those who are planning the steps to take in life come to understand that it doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty because the glass is always refillable. Also called The Poet’s Stone, Sodalite invites you to see the beauty in life and to communicate this grace in the most eloquent of ways. For writers, it is a striking stone to bring to the table as it encourages you to pick up a pen and let it flow. It’s an amazing stone for being a muse especially if you pair it with its favorite creative friends like Lapis Lazuli, Aquamarine and other such shimmering and mystical minded blue stones. Sodalite also has a penchant for positive thinking and invites all those who wear it to see the best in people. Like a beautiful blue washed-out sky after the storm, Sodalite is that big deep breath after the rain has passed, when you feel still and soft and born again. If you find the world is too temperamental for your soul, Sodalite could be the emotional anchor you need.

Spiritual Healing Properties

Sodalite is linked to the throat chakra, but it also has connections with the heart and the third eye chakra. It’s a highly spiritual stone that invites the wearer to strengthen their connections so they feel the grounding force of the earth beneath their feet, even when turning their eyes to look higher into the heavens above.

Sodalite is said to tap into the pituitary gland which taps into spiritual perception and serves as the gateway to enlightenment. Lofty perceptions aside, we all know that the path to higher thinking comes from deeply knowing oneself and having the wisdom to see deep into your own soul so you can live out all your days in authentic truth. Using Sodalite when playing around with your tarot pack also helps your own spiritual foresight unfold. It’s a gemstone ripe with crystal healing and can help you tap into those stashed away psychic abilities.

Zodiac Birthstone

Sodalite is a perfect match for the Sagittarius zodiac sign. Sagittarians are honest by nature, along with being restless, progressive in thought and always ready for an adventure. It’s common that these active members of the zodiac will find themselves in the center of a whirlwind storm and that’s where the soothing nature of Sodalite comes in. Being honest is an amazing trait, but it’s not always welcome when served up with blunt force. The poets stone can help Sagittarians to be a little more tactful with the truth so it is delivered and received with the best intentions at all times.

Sagittarians are a highly philosophical bunch and tend to think in favor of being ruled by feeling. While this is an honorable and intellectual trait, it also helps to have some empathy and heart-led decisions woven in instead of just being led by the analytical mind. They are a fire sign beneath that cool exterior, and this is why the cool touch of Sodalite (a stone that surges and swells with water and air) can quickly come sweeping in and ready to rescue – not to douse the flames but to bring some balance back.
