Shanipriya 2012 – New lot of Natural Madagascar Iolite
Iolite is the substitute gem for a natural Blue Sapphire. Alternatively known as Neeli in Hindi, it is an extremely powerful gem. It is the gem of Lord Saturn’s consort and is referred to, by the name of Shanipriya.
Gemstoneuniverse presents to you the new lot of fantastic natural Iolite from Madagascar – Shanipriya 2012. Iolite is also known as Cordierite or Dichroite (displaying two colors) and also called water sapphire.
Iolite is a Pleochroic gem, meaning that it exhibits a different color or a shade of color when viewed from different directions. The stone has been long-known to mankind and was used by the Vikings to locate the position of Sun and hence navigate their route on the sea.
While the pleochroism sets the gem apart and very useful, it is however presents great difficulty for the gem cutter – in case the gem is fashioned without careful assessment, the color uniformity could be lost. The gems have to cut carefully to restrict the play of yellow-brown shades and allow the violet blue color to remain dominant.
