This 0.75-carat untreated Iolite from Africa was cut as a faceted oval measuring 6 x 4 x 3 mm. It has an intense violet-blue color that is comparable to a sapphire, and would make a striking contrast against bright metals such as silver, gold or platinum. It would be beautiful set either as a ring, a pendant, a tie pin or even as a piece of body jewelry.

The pictures give an idea of how the gemstone looks under various lighting conditions and different backgrounds. The last picture shows the detail of the gem in profile.

Iolite is a variety of Cordierite and has also been called 'Water Sapphire' and 'Vikings' Compass', because of its ability to determine the direction of the sun on overcast days. Iolite measures between 7 - 7.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness, making it a suitable jewelry stone; however, some care must be exercised when wearing, such as protection from blows.

Iolite is the Wedding Anniversary stone for the 21st year of marriage.
