Sodalite teaches the nature of oneself in relationship to the universe, like gazing into a star-filled sky and forgetting the darkness to grasp the innumerable points of light. It inspires insight, awakening, examination, and connection. Called the blue “Logic Stone,” Sodalite emits an easy, tranquil energy that clears the mind and elicits deep thought, expanding the ability to arrive at logical conclusions based on rational consideration. It enhances one’s powers of analysis, intuition, observation and creativity, and strengthens self-discipline, efficiency and organization. Sodalite does not stimulate wisdom, but rather clears one’s vision and intellect opening the mind to formulate wisdom.
Sodalite is one of the densest and most grounded of the dark blue stones and is superb for meditation and deep journeying. It brings insights into the self and an honest evaluation of one’s motivations, strengths, weaknesses, gifts and patterns of destiny. It dispels mental confusion, stilling the mind to allow new information to be received, and brings an enlightened perspective on life. Sodalite increases consciousness, idealism, and striving for the truth, and eliminates guilt and fears better than any other stone. It helps one own and verbalize one’s true feelings and to stand up for oneself.
It is classified as a feldspathoid and is well-known for its rich blue color intermingled with white Calcite, though it may also form as gray, yellow, green, or pink. Sometimes mistaken for Lazurite or Lapis Lazuli, other members of the Sodalite family, Sodalite is a more traditional royal blue rather than the others’ rich ultramarine. It rarely contains the gold flecks of Pyrite common in Lapis, and unlike the even color of Lazurite, Sodalite characteristically displays white veining or mottled patches of Calcite, often with small black inclusions. It can further be distinguished from similar minerals by its white (rather than blue) streak, and its ability to fluoresce orange under ultraviolet light. It is often referred to as “poor man’s Lapis” because of its similar color and affordability.
Sodalite was first discovered in 1811 in the Ilimaussaq complex in Greenland, and gained importance as an ornamental stone in 1891 when vast deposits of fine material were found in Ontario, Canada. It is often referred to as Princess Blue, or its old trade name, Alomite. Other names for Sodalite are Blue Stone, Canadian Blue Stone, Canadian Lapis, and Glaucolite.
Sodalite is an ideal stone for those who are oversensitive, defensive, impulsive, or prone to anxiety or panic attacks to stabilize the mind and allow a shift from emotional to rational. Hold as a worry or palm stone to regain composure, and wear or carry Sodalite to maintain a calm, stable energy. Place on the Third Eye area to gain intellectual understanding and a clearer perspective of one’s self or a situation. Working with a Sodalite sphere helps correct aggressiveness towards others, as well as the self, and can reduce tendencies toward sadism or masochism.
A valued support crystal for women, Sodalite may be used to bring balance to the emotions and diminish outbursts brought on by PMS, menopause, or other hormone-related matters. It promotes understanding and assists in coming to terms with issues of aging, loss of fertility, empty nest syndrome and entering a new phase of life.
Sodalite is a talisman of the writer, known for enhancing creativity and inspiration, focus, and clear communication. It has also been called the Poet’s Stone, the Stone of Creatives, as well as the Stone of Truth. Utilize Sodalite as a research or study aid to remain centered and to sort out the new and unfamiliar, for stimulating deep thought, and for increasing inventiveness and originality in the expression of one’s artistic work. Sodalite may also be used as a psychic shield to keep others from stealing one’s ideas and inspirations.

Sodalite has been used in the treatment of gland metabolism, and as a purifying aid to cleanse the lymphatic system and organs. It is thought to ease water retention and to improve cellular hydration, as well as to support the regulation of blood pressure and a racing pulse or heart.
Sodalite is reputed to relieve symptoms of menopause, and to reduce inflammation in the body for conditions such as fever, headaches, sinus infections, and muscle strains. It may also be useful in treating the throat, vocal cords, and larynx, particularly in soothing hoarseness and laryngitis.
Sodalite is credited with ameliorating deficiencies of calcium, and for reducing acid in the system and other digestive disorders. It may also be used to combat excess weight, insomnia, and damage due to radiation.
Sodalite is a stone of truth, enabling the conscious and subconscious mind to connect with one’s thoughts and feelings, and helps one to recognize and verbalize those feelings and truths objectively. It allows the shadow qualities, those negative traits one dislikes about oneself, to rise to the surface to be acknowledged and accepted without judgement. Sodalite discharges anger and negative thoughts and empowers the release of core fears, phobias, guilt, and control mechanisms that hold one back. It creates a clear insightful mind open to finding inner peace. Sodalite enkindles self-acceptance and self-trust, and embraces the importance of remaining true to oneself.
Sodalite is an extraordinary stone uniting logic with intuition, encouraging spirituality and deep thinking. It is highly effective as a guide on inner travels through meditation, dream work or shamanic journeying, and can provide one with access to the sacred laws of the universe. By calmly presenting ideas, insights into the self, or symbolic imagery from the subconscious, Sodalite stimulates thought and allows the subtle feelings to permeate the center of one’s being. It promotes multileveled understanding, and allows one to both “speak the truth” and “know the truth.”
Sodalite is an excellent grounding tool for channeling inspirational, spiritual, and metaphysical writings, keeping one’s focus on the Third Eye center. It assists in activating the six clairs – clairvoyance, clairaudience, claircognizance, clairsentience, clairolfaction, and clairgustation. As a stone of insight and pattern recognition, Sodalite is a support stone for astrologers, numerologists, tarot readers, as well as for those who consult the I Ching and other oracles.
Sodalite is a perfect ally for meditation, clearing the mind and calming internal chatter, helping one to stay focused on the moment without being distracted by past or future concerns. This stone stimulates the pineal gland and Third Eye, and encourages a deep trance-like state from which one may gain valuable insights into the self without judgment, and an understanding of why one may find oneself in a current circumstance. Sodalite helps one recall and heal wounds of the past, perceive core lessons from this lifetime and understand where one is on the path to completing them. Sodalite also assists in remembering one’s dreams, and in practicing lucid dreaming.
Blue Tiger Eye
Tiger’s Eye is a most ancient talisman, mysterious and powerful, revered and feared – an “all-seeing all-knowing eye,” thought to grant a wearer the ability to observe everything, even through closed doors. It was chosen by the Egyptians for the eyes in their deity statues to express divine vision, and was believed to provide the protection of the sun and earth combined, of Ra, the sun god and Geb, god of the growing land.
