Healing Properties of Sodalite
Spiritual: Sodalite is a stone for Seekers of Truth, and anyone who finds themselves on a Spiritual Journey. It encourages us to uphold our most cherished, idealistic beliefs and to fearlessly take action to bring that idealism into reality. However, if our beliefs harm others or ignore reality, than Sodalite will gently peel away the layers from our eyes and allow us to see more clearly and compassionately. Sodalite helps us to recognize and be patient with where we are on our own Spiritual Path, and to trust that as we continue to progress, more and more will be revealed to us. Sodalite gives us the support we need to be true to ourselves and to accept both our Light and Shadow sides. It can be used to deepen our meditation, awaken our intuition, and communicate with wisdom. Sodalite is attuned to the Throat and Third Eye Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Sagittarius. It is connected to the element of Wind and vibrates to the number 4.
Emotional: Sodalite dissolves feelings of guilt or shame, whether they come from another person or from ourselves. It encourages emotional honesty allowing us to see the real reason behind our feelings and determine what we need to do to move forward. Its calm and peaceful vibration reduces stress and worries and helps us to be a little more detached and lighthearted, rather than taking everything personally and too seriously. Sodalite encourages independence while also being an excellent stone to use in group work and to help manifest community goals. Sodalite’s energy is soft and safe, so while it asks us to look at the absolute Truth in all things, it does so with a gentle nudge rather than a fierce push.
Mental: Sodalite increases our self-awareness and gives us the tools to find true freedom, by combining our intellectual and logical mind with our intuitive gifts. It allows us to calmly view and solve our problems logically and swiftly, for the Highest Good of All. It also helps us to recognize the unconscious mental, emotional, and behavioral patterns that take us away from our true selves. Sodalite then shows us how to release these patterns and live authentically and peacefully. Sodalite can also be used to treat insomnia and to encourage lucid dreaming!
Physical: Sodalite is used by metaphysical healers to treat ailments associated with the throat and vocal cords, as well as the digestive tract. It is said to stimulate the pineal gland and enhance sensory perceptions. It is believed to help lower blood pressure, clear electromagnetic pollution, and quietly reminds us to take care of ourselves on the most basic levels, for instance; drinking enough water, getting enough sleep, etc.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

I first met the owner of the mine and lapidary in 2014 at the Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time, he was set up with a single table and the only major Gem Show he attended was in Tucson. While most lapidaries sell their tumbled stone in pre-packaged bags by the pound or kilo, this seller allowed me to cherry pick through his stock and buy only the best. Since then, his spot in Tucson has expanded to four tables under a tent and he now sells at two of the major European shows. It has been fun to watch our businesses grow.
In 2018, I asked the owner if he would be willing to help connect me with a rural school in Peru near his mine. I told him that I wanted to “give back” to the communities that provided these beautiful crystals. He was pleased by my request and later that year introduced me to the principle of a suitable Peruvian school. We hope to begin supporting this school in the 2019-2020 school year.
