What makes blue stones so special?
While there are animals that may seem to be blue, that’s just the result of light refraction. In truth, no animal actually produces blue pigment! Maybe this is the reason why we humans are so attracted to this colour, especially when it’s as tangible and durable as stone.
This might be why our watches with blue stones, Lapis Lazuli and Sodalite, are so beloved by our customers.
For thousands of years, people have considered Lapis Lazuli and Sodalite to be precious and sacred.
People also thought these two stones were the same, with their differences in hue and grain only superficial. Nowadays we know otherwise... Do you want to learn how to distinguish them?

And now have a look at our models with a Sodalite dial. Click on your favorite and have a look at the closeup pictures: the white grain is more present than the blue. It’s amazing how it resembles sea ice, don't you think?
