Description: Yooperlite Point. UV Reactive! Yooperlite is syenite rock rich with fluorescent Sodalite. Under a black light, this point will glow a vibrant orange and yellow color. Syenite is a coarse-grained intrusive igneous rock that shares a composition resembling granite but lacks quartz.
Size: 3 – 3 1/2 inches in height. Approximately 1 inch thick. Weighs approximately 70 – 80 grams.
Metaphysical Uses: Yooperlite contains the same metaphysical properties as Sodalite due to its Sodalite content. Sodalite is an extraordinary stone uniting logic with intuition, encouraging spirituality and deep thinking. It is highly effective as a guide on inner travels through meditation, dream work, or shamanic journeying and can provide one with access to the sacred laws of the universe. By calmly presenting ideas, insights into the self, or symbolic imagery from the subconscious, Sodalite stimulates thought and allows subtle feelings to permeate the center of one’s being. It promotes multileveled understanding and allows one to “speak the truth” and “know the truth.”
Quick Healing Overview: Sodalite teaches the nature of oneself in relationship to the universe, like gazing into a star-filled sky and forgetting the darkness to grasp the innumerable points of light. It inspires insight, awakening, examination, and connection. Called the blue “Logic Stone,” Sodalite emits an easy, tranquil energy that clears the mind and elicits deep thought, expanding the ability to arrive at logical conclusions based on rational consideration. It enhances one’s powers of analysis, intuition, observation, and creativity and strengthens self-discipline, efficiency, and organization. Sodalite does not stimulate wisdom but rather clears one’s vision and intellect, opening the mind to formulate wisdom.
Birthstone & Zodiac Uses: Sodalite is not a traditional birthstone. Sodalite, blue in color, is one of the natural birthstones of those born as the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 19 – March 19). Sodalite is one of the zodiac stones for those born under the sign Sagittarius between November 22nd and December 21st, the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter.
For Chakra Balancing: Sodalite resonates with blue crystal energy that stimulates the Throat Chakra, the body’s voice. It is, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. Sodalite is an awakener of the Brow Chakra, or Third Eye, the center of our perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world.
Crystal Color Energy: Sodalite reflects the blue color energy of the sky as winter gives way to spring, and the sun climbs higher each day. It marks the beginning of life and emotion. Blue crystals bring trust, faith, patience, and respect, lending the focus we need to become more sincere, act more responsibly, and become more trustworthy. Sodalite also embodies the color indigo, combining the intuition of the violet ray with the trust of the pure blue ray. It brings wisdom, truth, dignity, and spiritual mastery.
Associated Goddesses: Sodalite is used in devotions to Dana (Danu), the Celtic River Goddess; Hera, the Greek Queen of Gods; Nuit, the Egyptian Goddess of Heaven and Sky; and Venus, the Roman Goddess of Love.
Feng Shui Uses: Sodalite utilizes Water energy, the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful. The Water element brings the power of regeneration and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life.
Uses in Divination: The Divinatory meaning of Sodalite: There is something that needs to be said, but you will have to use the right words.
Talisman Energy: Sodalite is an Enhancer Filter crystal. Enhancers have internal crystal lattices of perfect cubic symmetry and internal harmony. As “building block” talismans, their internal structure helps focus our efforts to build on our successes and enhance our lives. Crystals, with the earth’s power of a Filter, absorb positive energy flow but work to keep negative energy away from us. They help us view the world in a “glass half full” outlook, to see the best in others, the beauty in life, and the good in humanity.
