Substantial, wishbone setting for this super quality faceted Iolite stone.  We used a flash to highlight the lovely colour of the Iolite, but it appears slightly darker in daylight.  Set in 925 sterling silver.

Iolite is a beautiful violet blue stone (the word 'Iolite' is Greek for ‘violet’), said to be a stone of vision, which, therefore, aligns best with the Third Eye or Brow Chakra. Also known as water sapphite, it is a psychic stone par excellance!  When all chakras are in alignment and it is placed on the third eye, it can assist greatly with psychic insight and vision.

One of its best qualities, though, is that it is said to help access reasons behind addictive behaviour. Often these reasons are tied up with expectation - those placed upon us by people around us which we have incorrectly taken onboard. It can help us to see that we do not have to conform to these expectations and can be free of their restrictions. Addictions are not always those as obvious as drink or drugs; but often more subtle behavioural ones such as an intense competitive nature (beyond basic personality), repeat offenders in relationships, i.e. always choosing the same type of person and always having the same negative outcome (same man, different venue syndrome!) or an addiction to work. It is also said to be excellent where co-dependency is indicated; releasing friction and fear in a relationship helping you to start to take responsibility for yourself again.

It is from the Cordierite group of minerals, Iolite is unusual in that is shows a strong pleochroism (an optical phenomenon caused by refracted light) which means it shows two colours. When viewed from one angle it can appear quite grey and lifeless, but when rotated in your hand through 90 degrees, it suddenly reveals the most beautiful violet colour!  This effect is best seen with either a rough or tumbled piece of Iolite.
