IOLITE HAS BEEN KNOWN AS ‘WATER-SAPPHIRE’ AND ‘VIKINGS COMPASS’ AND WAS USEFUL IN THE DAYS OF THE VIKINGS WHEN THE SUN OVER HEAD WOULD BE VIEWED IN THE STONE, USING ITS STRONG PLEOCHROISM - THE GEM BY ITS STRUCTURE COULD HELP THEM DETERMINE THE DIRECTION OF THE POLARISATION OF THE SKY OVERHEAD. IOLITE VARIES IN COLOR AND THIS ONE IS ALMOST DARK GREY WITH A HINT OF VIOLET. ITS FASCINATING PROPERTIES INCLUDE SPARKLING MINUTE PLATELETS OF SUNSTONE THAT FLASH WHEN THE LIGHT GREETS THEM. IOLITE IS SLIGHTLY HARDER THAN QUARTZ AND A VARIETY OF FELDSPAR. THIS PIECE EXHIBITS A BEAUTIFUL AVENTURESCENCE - WITH A SCHILLER EFFECT IN MAINLY SILVERY PLATELETS WITH INCLUSIONS. IT HAS A STRONG PLEOCHROISM BEING DARK GREY ON ONE AXIS AND ALMOST COLORLESS BROWN ON ANOTHER.
