¨ Iolite comes from the Ancient Greek word: ἴον (ion), which means “violet”
¨ Primary sources: Australia, Brazil, Canada, India, Madagascar, Myanmar/Burma, Namibia, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, U.S.A.
¨ Also historically known as “Water Sapphire”
¨ Was believed to be used by the ancient Vikings— due to Iolite’s unique properties of Pleiochroism, it will display 3 different colors depending on the direction of the light filtering through the crystal’s structure: light violet, dark violet, or colorless to yellow-brown. On cloudy overcast days when the sun was not easily visible for navigation, this stone would be held up to the sky and turned to determine the source direction of the sun shining through.
