Sodalite is a sodium aluminum silicate and was first discovered in 1806 in Greenland. Its name derives from its sodium content. Sodalite can be blue, gray, white, green, yellow or reddish and can usually be found with stripes of white calcite throughout. It did not gain popularity until 1891 when vast deposits were discovered in Ontario, Canada. It can also be found in Brazil, Namibia, India and USA.
Other cultures besides the Egyptians see meaning in the shape of the pyramid. The shape itself is very strong, being primarily made of stable triangles, and it has itself become a symbol of stability. This little Sodalite pyramid is from Brazil.
