It's a crystal! Ok, it is not complete, and it has considerable damage, but sodalite crystals are rare. This crystal fragment has 8 faces visible, and is superficially opaque as is most massive sodalite. However, I noticed a bright blue glow from one spot on an edge, and the back (fractured) surface is somewhat sparkly and a deep blue color. Under a loupe, much of the crystal is translucent, and there are some transparent areas that sparkle an intense blue color. You do need a loupe to appreciate this unusual specimen of sodalite.
