Sodalite is usually seen as a deep blue crystal that is often confused with Lapis Lazuli, however Lapis contains pyrite whilst Sodalite does not. It was technically discovered in 1806 in Greenland, but ancient civilisations such as the Peruvians traded Sodalite as far back as 2600 BC. It gets its name from the sodium-rich magmas from which it crystallized. Although blue is the most common colour, Sodalite can also be found in shades of pink, yellow or green, and transparent crystals can be found.
