Lapis Lazuli or Sodalite? the ethics of blue stone

Lapis Lazuli is available everywhere!  its cheap and its verrrrry blue!  Lapis is known for having inclusions of fools gold in it and that often gives it its lustrous blue.  The problem with lapis lazuli though is that most of it comes from Afghanistan.  Most of it is used to fuel the sale and distribution of drugs around the world.  Why would you do that?  Instead buy sodalite stone if you like deep dark blue.  It doesn’t have the same lustre as lapis lazuli but ethically sourced from South Africa, it at least hasn’t killed someone
