Sodalite is found all over the world, but this orange-infused variety comes from Brazil. It is named after its sodium content. It was discovered in Greenland about 200 years ago but didn’t become popular until Princess Patricia, on a trip to Ontario, chose it for the interior decoration of Marlborough House in England. Since then, its color has been called Princess Blue.
