The name Iolite comes from the Greek work for violet and this is reflected in the colour of this attractive polished Iolite Tumblestone. As the light angle changes the iolite colour varies in colour from sapphire blue to blue violet to yellowish gray and to light blue. This optical phoenomenon in iolite was believed to be used by Viking mariners as the world's first polarising filter.
Iolite is a vision stone and is said to help us gain inner wisdom, bring courage and unlock spiritual abilities.
Tumblestones are a great way to collect a variety of different crystals. Their smooth finish and handy size allows you to store them easily or keep them close to you if you choose. They show off the natural colours beautifully and can be used in a variety of different ways from crystal healing to meditation. A wonderful addition for any crystal enthusiast.
