Sodalite gemstones can be used for carvings. However, at times the quality of the stone will show how soft it is after an item is carved when the cracks show. The harder pockets of sodalite when they are found are used in jewelry; however it is still not a good idea to use sodalite in the making of rings.
It is also said that because of the ability to balance both sides of the mind for cohesion and peace it is a great gemstone for creative types. All I know for sure is that if you like blue like I do you are sure to enjoy owning sodalite gemstones.
