One 28.5 inch strand of Blue Sodalite 6mm round beads. The average bead count per strand is 115.
It's an interesting stone. It is fairly lightweight. It is full of sodium - that is why it was named sodalite. It is hard and fragile at the same time. (Reminds me of some individuals I know.)
Sodalite healing properties:
Sodalite is the best crystal for your lymphatic system, especially after any kind of radiation exposure. Also great for emotional-spiritual exposure.
Attracts the thoughts that enable spiritual awakening and an ability to weave natural wisdom into everyday life.
Sodalite awakens one's genius. It is a wonderful crystal for self-made individuals or those desiring to build their own empires. It is especially beneficial for serious, honest and modest individuals. It enables you to gain through clarity and logical, so that you can make the best use of your analytic and organizational skills. Sodalite promotes steady growth.
Sodalite helps hard workers remember to include downtime and play to relieve stress from too much thinking and work.
Sodalite is nice to wear as it not too dense and therefore lighter. It's a little bit fragile, so keep your beads from swinging into things.
As you might surmise, its name comes from sodium, which it contains. Blue Sodalite has been the preference of jewelers for such a long time that we tend to think of Sodalite as a blue mineral. It comes in a bunch of colors though. Right now, the combination of blue and orange sodalite is very popular. Sodalite also comes in yellow, green, red, pink and a sort of gray. It is rarely a solid color. It usually has a good bit of white in it.
It was first found in Greenland around 1811, but about 80 years passed before it was extensively used for decoration and jewelry. That is when they discovered another big deposit of Sodalite in Ontario, Canada.
