Sodalite, Natural, Smooth Round, 8mm with 2mm Hole, One Strand.

This price is for one strand 12 to 14 inches long. 

8mm strands have 43 to 48 pieces and has 2mm hole. 

Sodalite is rock-forming mineral best known for its blue to blue-violet with white Calcite mixed within the stones. First discovered by Europeans in 1811 in Greenland, Sodalite did not become important as an ornamental stone until 1891 when vast deposits of fine material were discovered in Ontario, Canada.

The biggest deposits of this stone are in Brazil. It has also been found in Russia, Greenland, Romania, Brazil, France, India, Myanmar, Namibia, Canada, and the USA.

Sodalite often has white veining, and it can be confused with Lapis Lazuli. Small amounts of Sodalite are present in many specimens of Lapis Lazuli. If significant Pyrite is present, then specimen is not Sodalite.

Hardness 5.5 to 6 

This is a natural stone that has had no treatment other than cutting, drilling, and polishing. 

The source of these beads is Brazil and they are cut, drilled and polished in China
