Tumbled Iolite Stone
Iolite is a variety of the mineral Cordierite. It is rich in iron and comes in shades of purple and grey or can be colorless. It has a vitreous luster and a transparent look. Iolite is highly durable and shows different colors when viewed from different angles.
Historians conjecture that iolite might have been among the first materials used to create polarizing lenses for primitive eyeglasses. Ancient Viking legends talk about explorers using iolite slices as visual filters when clouds covered the sun.
In Medieval times, stones like iolite that were used for finding the sun on overcast days were called “sunstones.” Another stone used at the time was a variety of transparent calcite called “Iceland spar.”
According to metaphysics: Iolite metaphysical properties can shake you out of a funk and get you motivated again. If you suffer from brain fog and distraction, iolite can clear the mist and hone your focus.
Are you a creative soul? Maybe you find yourself staring at a blank page with frustration and self-doubt. Iolite can activate your creativity, helping you think outside the box and express yourself with self-assurance.
