Beautiful looking sodalite Michael, you have a knack for finding the best materials. With your amazing craftsmanship I am sure they will make spectacular scales. Love your knives.
I have a few small slabs of a dark blue sodalite material with black metallic inclusions in it, it is sold and fine grained but much more subtle in tone than this stuff and not big enough for scales. I also have a kilo chunk bright blue coarsely crystalline sodalite, fabulous colour but too many cleavage planes for scales or even cabs.
