Sodalite is a member of the sodalite group with hauyne, nosean, lazurite, and tugtupite. First discovered by Europeans in 1811 in the Ilimaussaq intrusive complex in Greenland, sodalite did not become important as an ornamental stone until 1891 when deposits of fine material were discovered in Ontario, Canada.
