Here hand-carved, faceted sodalite teardrops hang beneath a sodalite diamond bead. Bali silver beadcaps shelter the teardrops from above, and these are suspended below sodalite diamond-shaped beads that are framed by smooth silver rounds. These earrings come on sterling French hooks, and hang 2 inches below the earwires.
Identical to lapis but for one chemical difference, sodalite has been used for millenia as having very similar properties to lapis lazuli. Where lapis has flecks of golden pyrite, sodalite contains white silicate, often giving the stone the appearance of a deep blue dusk sky. Like lapis, sodalite works on one's Third Eye, allowing one to look inward without anxiety; the lovely stone works on very subtle levels, and assists in integrating life lessons quite peacefully. Some metaphysicians suggest that sodalite also helps to strengthen the immune system, although this is not a medical prescription!
A lovely gift of this stone is the peace which comes from working with it. Rather than blame and self-recrimination, one is more likely to find gifts of self-forgiveness and a greater appreciation for one's self by helping to lessen the guilt trips with which we often punish ourselves after making mistakes. In addition, we are also oft more able to deal with others in a similar manner - not needing games, but being less afraid to be honest, even humanly vulnerable and humble.
As sodalite colors range from pale blues with dark streaks to dark blue with light calcite streaks, it is associated with three different chakras: The throat chakra (lighter blues), the Third Eye (pineal gland - the indigo blues), and the Crown chakra - the white patterns. Therefore, this lovely stone can assist, for instance, in aiding you when asking for the universe or Deity to reveal hidden clues and buried wisdom which will help you ascertain whether or not you are working in the best manner for your Soul's evolution, growing enough from the lessons you're learning (and re-learning!) - by bringing "down" (or out!) your connection to the Divine (Crown Chakra).
All of our items are one of a kind, hand-crafted, and designed with a true love of the glorious gemstones from Mother Earth. Thanks for looking, and Brightest Blessings!
