Faith, Hope & Love 4 – Blue Sodalite – one of the beautiful necklace sets in my Faith, Hope & Love Collection, where the centerpiece of each necklace is a beautiful semi-precious stone cross. This beautiful stone cross is crafted from Blue Sodalite, which was first discovered in 1811 in Greenland. It didn’t come into wide use until 1891 when vast deposits were discovered in Ontario, Canada.
Sodalite, named after its high sodium content, intrigued even the famous scientist Linus Pauling, who studied it in 1930. Because of its color and texture, it can easily be confused with Lapis Lazuli. Interestingly, most sodalite will fluoresce orange under ultraviolet light.
Each necklace in my Faith, Hope & Love Collection fastens with a hand-made sterling silver fish clasp.
In metaphysics, Sodalite is widely used – it is said to provide you with the power to communicate effectively, enhance your ability to speak the truth of your emotions, follow your intuition, allows you to be objective, encourages rational thoughts, and is said to be able to reduce panic attacks.
There are a wide range of healing properties associated with Sodalite. It enhances intelligence, is able to reduce fevers, and assist with insomnia. There are some people who believe that sodalite is able to lower blood pressure, and at the same time boost your immune system. It has a focus on the throat and larynx, and so wearing the crystal or stone on a chain around your neck will allow it to lie close to the areas of your body in which it is most effective. Some have found that it is able to assist with weight loss, as well as with water retention issues.
The sterling fish clasp is handmade in an Israeli kibbutz which specializes in sterling silver jewelry components. If you want to find out more about the history of Israeli kibbutzim, here is a link: https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/history-and-overview-of-the-kibbutz-movement
