Our iolite beads showcase our commitment to quality and affordability. Iolite was discovered in the 19th century and quickly gained popularity in jewelry-making. The name finds its history in the Greek phrase for, you guessed it, violet.

Kaleidoscope of Colors

Iolite is highly prized by gem collectors and stone crafters alike due to its rich, translucent indigos, violets, and purples. What makes this gemstone so unique is that when viewed from different angles the color, hue, and transparent qualities can subtly shift, revealing deeper beauty by demonstrating shades of golden brown and honey yellow. That’s one of the many reasons that iolite jewelry is so alluring. It has the ability to display an ever-changing kaleidoscope of rich blues and lighter golds.

Iolite is also called “water sapphire” due to its ability to shift colors. In the same way that water can be deep blue, rich tropical green, earthy brown, or even clear, the iolite gemstone adds liquidity to any project. Perhaps its similarity to the sea is one of the reasons it was such a popular stone among sea traveling ancients.

Viking Stone

Sometimes referred to as the Viking stone, iolite beads are reputed to have been used by legendary Viking explorers, like Leif Eriksson, to determine the location of the sun and safely navigate their ships on cloudy days. This is one reason why iolite has long been considered a stone of vision. While you may not need to use iolite to safely traverse stormy waters, these beautiful stones can surely act as a guide for whatever art or craft project you can imagine.

Dual Properties

With its sight-aiding properties, it’s no wonder that iolite beads have been said to help bring clarity to the eye chakra. Offering clarity of vision by cutting through the haze of daily life, iolite enhances our ability to see clearly and naturally aids in creative expression.

Aside from its mesmerizing aesthetic properties (which are many), iolite gemstone beads have long been used to bring balance and open communication. They have also been used to strengthen resolve and bring focus to those who wear them for metaphysical purposes.
