Product Overview

Loose Natural Iolite Gemstone!

A watery purplish Blue Iolite! Expertly faceted into a Princess cut. The color is gorgeous. This gem has a very minute twinkle (Internal Characteristic) in the crown (side). Does not take away the beauty of this gemstone.  This awesome Iolite is a perfect gem for a unique jewelry piece such as a ring or a pendant! 

Iolite is a extreme example of a color shifting property called pleochroism. Iolite will appear violet blue, sometimes clear, shift it again and you can see a golden yellow! This unique phenomenon helped the Vikings on their sea journeys. The Vikings would gaze through a thin piece of Iolite at the sun. They were then able to tell by the shifting color, their navigating position of the sun.
