Iolite, named after the Greek word “ios,” meaning violet; has a rich purple, blue hue mirroring the night sky. Iolite is known as the gemstone of clear visions, promoting intuition and inner knowing. The color of iolite ranges in depth from deep purple, blue tones similar to tanzanite and sapphire into soft subtle gray tones.
Labradorite has an understated grey base with a hidden fire inside that shines through at just the right angle. The iridescence ranges from deep blue, to yellowish green, even into the orange and purple hues. Labradorite, the bringer of light, is believed to be a highly mystical and protective stone. It stimulates intuition and psychic gifts and strengthens faith in the self and trust in the universe.
Turquoise has traditionally been thought of as a stone to unite earth and sky, bringing together male and female energies. It is considered a strengthening stone while also instilling inner calm and enhancing intuition.
