---------------
A rich violet blue Iolite from India, with a nice size to be set in a ring or a pendant. This gemstone is also called Cordierite but is better known by its trade name Iolite from the Greek word Ios meaning Violet.
Iolite is strongly pleochroic, this means it reflects light in different colors depending on the angle it’s viewed from.

Due to its hardness, Iolite is suitable for all purpose in jewelry
Iolite (from the Greek "Ios": violet) is the blue-purplish gem variety of the Cordierite mineral group. Iolite can be very similar to Blue Sapphire, that's why it is also called "water sapphire".

Given its strong pleochroism, great skills are required from the gem cutter to properly cut the stone so that it shows the most beautiful hues from the top.
Iolite is mainly mined in India, other deposits are located in Australia, Brasil, Burma, Tanzania and United States.
Iolite is associated to the Sagittarius zodiac sign.
