Is sodalite with rhodochrosite inclusions real/natural?

0 votes
Recently I've seen dealers selling sodalite with rhodochrosite inclusions. Is that a thing or are they dying sodalite's veins to look like rhodochrosite?

Yes, it is possible. Sodalite is a blue crystal. Word of a fraud perpetrated like that would spread quickly. I could find no mention of it.
