★ Healing and Metaphysical Properties of Iolite Stone
Iolite - The Clairvoyance Gemstone
Iolite is a bluish purple color gemstone. My one of my favorite shades of blue. The name Iolite is derived from the Greek words “ios” meaning violet and “lithos” meaning stone. The chemical composition of iolite is magnesium aluminium silicate. Iolite is a variety of the mineral Cordierite which was named after French geologist P L A Cordier. Who I am sure was a lady magnet back in the day.
