I’m new to the site and have so much to learn! I look forward to reading the forums.
Can anyone tell me what this stone is? I’ve been told that it’s sodalite, but I have my doubts. The white is more spot than vein, though coloration is similar. It has been suggested that it is sodalite but mined from an area whose deposits vary from what I know sodalite to be.
The stone for me is Lapis Lazuli / Sodalite, same family specially for the greasy aspect. You can use a drop of “Nitric Acid” to check it, if the drop disolve the spot, you know it is Sodalite. But, if you get a foul odor consider it as Lapis Lazuli.
