SODALITE

Sodium Aluminum Silicate Chloride
Na4Al3(SiO4)3Cl.

Sodalite is a scarce mineral that can be rock forming.  Named for its high sodium content and is used for carvings and some jewelry pieces.  The colour is light to dark pure blue. Sodalite is a member of the feldspathoid group of minerals.  Minerals whose chemistries are close to alkali feldspars and poor in silica (SiO2) content, are called feldspathoids.   If quartz were present when the melt was crystallizing, it would react with any feldspathoids and form a feldspar.

Localities that have feldspathoids are few but some produce large quantities of the mineral. When not blue, is hard to distinguish from other feldspathoids.  It is the only feldspathoid that contains chlorine.  Sodalite dissolved in a dilute solution of HNO3 gives a positive chlorine test obtained from some swimming pool test kits.
