More about Iolite

Calling all seafarers - Iolite is the gemstone for you! Iolite, aka the “Viking’s Compass” has a strong association with water - both in its bluish hue and in its usefulness in navigation. Iolite is a light polarizer, and helped viking navigators judge the position of the sun and thus their position on the open seas. Iolite is the gemological name of the stone, but it is also known as Cordierite in mineralogy. Iolite is the more transparent of the two varieties. The name Iolite comes from the Greek word for violet, "Ios." The coloring of our Iolite beads varies from deep, smoky blues and violets to lighter indigo.

Iolite is a magnesium iron aluminum cyclosilicate and can be found in many locations around the world.

Metaphysically, Iolite beads are said to help with clear vision and facilitating insight.
