Iolite is a mineral that belongs to the group of silicate minerals known as the cordierite group. It is also sometimes known as "water sapphire" due to its blue-violet color, which can resemble that of a sapphire.
Iolite is found in various parts of the world, including India, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Madagascar, and the United States. It is typically blue to violet in color, although it can also occur in shades of yellow-brown and gray. The color of iolite can vary depending on the angle at which it is viewed, a phenomenon known as pleochroism, which is particularly pronounced in iolite.
Iolite is said to have a range of metaphysical properties, including promoting clear thinking, enhancing intuition, and improving communication skills. It is also believed to be a helpful stone for meditation and spiritual development.
