Sodalite is a rare rock-forming mineral that is a member of a group of stones known as "feldspathoids." They are special aluminosilicate minerals that contain a lot of calcium, potassium or sodium.
Debra Gasper's must-have Bear is carved from a gorgeous sodalite specimen. The blue colors are glorious. It's about 2 3/4" long, 3/4" wide and 1 3/8" tall. Sterling silver inlaid eyes make this fetish wonderful.
