|Comments||It is the wonderful substitute gem that can be used in place of Blue Sapphire to harness the powers of Saturn – Iolite. The stone derives its name from the greek word ios meaning ‘Violet’, which is its characteristic color.
Featured today is a beautiful pear shaped natural Iolite from Madagascar, free from any treatment whatsoever. This beauty with an appealing bluish violet color and good clarity is set in Sterling silver as a pendant.
Iolite is great healing stone and is believed to alleviate a number of health issue from the greatly discomforting bloating and water retention to helping in case of hyper anxiety and stress. The gem is pleochroic – so to say that it exhibits a slightly different color from the different angles of viewing the gem, largely due to the refractive properties.
Iolite is known as Neeli and is the gem of Saturn’s consort. It is a gem that is highly favoured by the soothesayers and clairvoyants as it is known to sharpen the intuitive powers in individuals. It is a favoured gem for getting a balanced understanding of life and self thus fostering a greater harmony within the being.
It should be noted that Iolite is comparatively less hard than a Blue sapphire and care must be taken while handling this stone.
