Wholesale "Sodalite"

Sodalite is a mineral of igneous alkaline rocks and pegmatites. It has sorption properties similar to zeolites. The name comes from the sodium content in sodalite, just like soda. More often forms solid masses than crystals.

You can see sodalite stone for sale and buy it in the Minerals of Russia online store.
