Sodalite Layered Necklace

0.00

A dark blue piece of Sodalite with a rare pocket of orange calcite is settled into a fine silver scalloped bezel, atop a sterling silver backplate with twist wire rope and handmade ball details. A "cage" of sterling silver wire surrounds the piece. My maker's mark and .925 are included on the back, for authenticity. It is strung on a shiny sterling silver chain, measuring approximately 11 1/2 inches in length. It has been given a dark patina and brought to a soft, satin finish. All jump rings are soldered closed for durability. 

Sodalite is a blue gemstone almost invariably veined with white streaks or markings. Its ideal color is an intense blue, and it comes in all shades of blue from light blue to deep royal-blue, and from grayish-blue to violet.  Sodalite was first discovered in Greenland in the 19th century. Nowadays, it can also be found in Portugal, Brazil, Bolivia, Canada, Russia, Australia, Tanzania, and China. Rare kinds of sodalite have also been found in Namibia and in Vesuvius, Italy. It also comes from the Latin word ‘sodalitas’ which means comrade.
