Description
Guru beads are traditionally used in mala prayer beads. It's three-holed design allows the ends of the stringing material to pass out through the middle of the bead. Sodalite is named after its sodium content; in mineralogy it may be classed as a feldspathoid. Sodalite was discovered in Greenland in 1806, but was not widely used as an ornamental stone until 1891 when large deposits were discovered in Ontario, Canada. On a visit to Ontario, Princess Patricia chose Sodalite as interior decoration for Marlborough House in England, hence the alternative name for this beautiful gemstone: Princess Blue. Mohs: 6
Metaphysically, Sodalite is said to enhance communication.
Origin: Africa
Also Known As: Princess Blue
