Beautifully poilished, this is a piece of Ontario Sodalite that is quite large. It is not as heavy as you would think as the back is flat where there is a slight curve to the crystal and the curved areas come around and make some areas thinner than others. It is certainly a goregous statement piece that has a lot of surface to rest against your skin.
The colours are incredible! Rich dark blues are accented with cloud like whites in a miriad of patterns. From top to bottom of your stone, it measures over 2 inches long and the width is just under 1.5 inches across. I've hand wrapped it using sterling silver wire.
Many years ago, I lucked into meeting one of the family members who used to own the Princess Mine located in Bancroft Ontario. This particular piece of Sodalite is from one of many from this original collection and I'm happy to be adding it here to Wicked Stones. The collection if have is in very limited supply so I'll only be posting a few at a time here.
A bit of history about your crystal: In the year 1901 the Princess of Wales was given a piece of stone from this mine and she simply fell in love with its beauty. Arrangements were made to quarry enough of this gem to decorate her residence in London England (called the Marlborough House.) This is how the Princess Sodalite Mine found its name.
