- The Princess Sodalite mine is located 4km east of Bancroft, on Highway 28. The sodalite from this mine varies in its intensity of blue. The surrounding material is composed of a grayish-white mineral called Nepheline. Nepheline Syenite gneiss is the geologic name of the rock found in this mine.
- And that is from where the name “Princess Sodalite Mine” comes. Today, sodalite is commonly used in the creation of jewelry and as an ornamental stone. It is also the mineral most people associate with the uniqueness of the Bancroft region’s mineral heritage. The pieces of sodalite you will find in the rock farm vary in the intensity of blue.
