me too. the blue in lapis is usually a standard blue leaning towards a bluish green. but not quite a bluish green. the blue in sodalite is more darker in color. also you will see either black or very dark blue shades in it as well. also the white in sodalite is a bright white. the white in lapis has an almost yellow tint to it. also another dead give away is traces of pyrite in lapis where you do not see it in sodalite.

Lapis is one of the oldest stone Egyptian like to wear this as well. Lapis lazuli stone properties are also amazing.

Two posts (your first) so far promoting this page. You wouldn't perhaps be here to sell, now would you?
