Orange Sodalite is a mix of Sodalite and Orange Feldspar (Sunstone). The Orange Feldspar runs through the blue Sodalite making veins of a very attractive orange, rusty color spiders web patterns. It is also known as Sunset Sodalite. This newer deposit of Sodalite was discovered in Canada and Brazil.
It is not dyed. There are too many white veins alongside the rusty orange for it to have been dyed (ie. if dyed, there would be only orange veins, no white).
This is a natural stone that has had no treatment other than cutting, drilling, and polishing.
The source of these beads is Brazil and they are cut, drilled and polished in China.
