Iolite is often called "Water Sapphire" though it is not a form of sapphire, it is Cordierite. It's also called "Viking Stone" or "Viking's Compass" because it is said to have been used in very thin sheets to make lenses that the Vikings used to chart their course on the rough night seas. It's deep blue color reminds you of a crisp, dark night sky. Holding Iolite, I'm reminded of the clarity I feel when I sit outside at night and stare up at the moon asking for guidance and insight.
Iolite is a great stone to work with if you often feel distracted, disorganized or disoriented. It helps stimulate your Third Eye chakra and helps you gain a clearer perspective of what your future vision is, the course you're on and spark your imagination for how you can make things easier on yourself.
It's prized as a shamanic journeying stone as it's said to help with visions and astral travel.
This Iolite was mined in Brazil.
With this listing you'll get ONE piece of large Iolite that I'll intuitively choose for you out of my collection. Sizes and color combinations naturally vary among the stones. Iolite is medium to deep blue or blue-violet with varying amounts of grey or white streaks inside.
Your Iolite stone will come in an organza gift bag with a white sage leaf and instructions for cleansing and charging your stone. I use running water, white sage, sunlight & moonlight to charge all of my stones before offering them to you - but you'll want to conduct your own cleansing and charging rituals from time to time as well.
