Sodalite in Australia
« on: August 16, 2018, 09:51:42 PM »
Just wish to pick members brains, can anybody tell me if Sodalite is found in this country and where would the deposits be found.   Why I am asking this question is that a friend of mine has just come back from Emerald in Queensland and she has sent photo's to me of what looks like Sodalite, would this be possible.


Cheers Tinker beers

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

Thanks Malachi,  I thought there may have been some on the main land, have had a friend that bought a couple of bags of samples whilst they were u p in Emerald, found some nice sapphire in the dirt and what looks like Sodalite, but it could just be a fractured Sapphire. beers
