Re: Mineral ID help please - Blue quartz???
For one thing, the "Blue quartz, sure" ain't; it's sodalite & probably from Brazil. The white is likely some orthoclase, which is sometimes on inclusion in sodalite. Interestingly, sodalite can only form where there's NO or VERY little quartz around; so, your guess is quite off. On the plus side, that is a very good cab of sodalite.
