Although massive sodalite samples are opaque, crystals are usually transparent to translucent. Sodalite is a member of the sodalite group with hauyne, nosean, lazurite and tugtupite. Dating back to ancient civilizations, the Sodalite crystal meaning is linked to the ethereal energy that promotes the highest form of self-expression. Sculptors, painters, and artists were known to carry Sodalite for inspiration. The Sodalite crystal stone meaning has a long held association with the color of the heavens. During the Renaissance, this particular shade of blue was considered a sacred color (sacre bleu) and was often used to color the robes of Mother Mary and the Archangel Michael, a warrior-archangel with a flaming sword.
