Sodalite

Chemical Composition : Na8Al6Si6O24Cl2

Hardness : 5.5 – 6.0

Specific Gravity (Density) : 2.27 – 2.33 (g/cm3)

Refractive Index : 1.483 – 1.487 Isotropic

Sodalite is a member of the Sodalite mineral group that also includes Hackmanite, Tugtupite and Lazurite. The Sodalite mineral group is named after its most common member. Sodalite is also one of the members of the Feldspathoid group of minerals that includes Cancrinite, Haüyne, Lazurite, Leucite, Nepheline and Sodalite. Minerals with chemistries that are close to those of the alkalai Feldspars, but are poor in silica (SiO2) content, are called Feldspathoids. Sodalite is mostly known for vivid blue, opaque material that is seldom transparent and clean enough for faceting. Faceted gems are very rare and usually very small.

Although Sodalite is found in several localities around the world, few of these produce transparent crystals for faceting. A recent find in Afghanistan has produced some beautiful, colorless, very clean gems. Other locations such as Bancroft, Ontario, Canada are the source of small, semi-transparent, vivid blue gems

I should be incapable of drawing a single stroke at the present moment; and yet I feel that I never was a greater artist than now.

Like these sweet mornings of spring which I enjoy with my whole heart.

When, while the lovely valley teems with vapour around me, and the meridian sun strikes the upper surface of the impenetrable foliage of my trees, and but a few stray gleams steal into the inner sanctuary, I throw myself down among the tall grass by the trickling stream.

A wonderful serenity has taken possession of my entire soul.

Authorities in our business will tell in no uncertain terms that Lorem Ipsum is that huge, huge no no to forswear forever. Not so fast, I'd say, there are some redeeming factors in favor of greeking text, as its use is merely the symptom of a worse problem to take into consideration.

Safe delivery, ensures the movement of goods in a short time.

You begin with a text, you sculpt information, you chisel away what's not needed, you come to the point, make things clear, add value, you're a content person, you like words. Design is no afterthought, far from it, but it comes in a deserved second. Anyway, you still use Lorem Ipsum and rightly so, as it will always have a place in the web workers toolbox, as things happen, not always the way you like it, not always in the preferred order. Even if your less into design and more into content strategy you may find some redeeming value with, wait for it, dummy copy, no less.
