IOLITE: A BRIEF HISTORY

Iolite has an important place in history as the Norse explorer Leif Ericson and his Viking adventurers used thin pieces of the gemstone as the world's first polarizing filter. Due to its strong pleochroism they were able to use iolite as a lens, resulting in them determining the exact position of the sun, and ultimately navigate their path to safety.

MEANING BEHIND THE STONE

It is believed to assist in detoxifying the body, and crystal healers are known to use iolite to help treat addictions.
Iolite is also thought to enhance curiosity and help in building relationships, while aiding spiritual insight, and helping one view an issue from both sides clearly.
