This beautiful natural eye clean stone is about 5.5mmx8mm and weighs .73 ct. I have one more of these stones about this size and a couple which are smaller. The band is hammered & round.

This ring is size 11.5 (W 1/2), but I will be happy to make a ring like this for you in your size. It will take about 3 or 4 days to complete it - most or this time is just in tumblers to temper the metal after the heat of the torch makes it soft. Please check with me to be sure I have the size stone you prefer. :)

The color is an incredible violet- blue.
Mg2Al3O Magnesium Aluminum Silicate, Iolite is a blue silicate mineral that occurs as crystals or grains in igneous rocks, only as a result of contamination of the magma by aluminous sediment.
Iolite has a pleasing color of blue, but a rather extraordinary optical property. The gemstone changes colors depending upon which angle it is viewed from.
There is quite a lot of Synthetic magnesium iolite available on the market today but it will not have the same refractive, pleochroic optical property.

It is also known as Sri Lanka Water Sapphire (though it is not chemically a sapphire.) because of the color and transparent and its marked pleochroism: different colored light is transmitted in different directions.
Iolite, known as the Vikings' compass, due to it's ability to determine the direction of the sun on overcast days. When the legendary Viking mariners sailed the wide ocean, they used thin pieces of iolite as the world's first polarizing filter. Looking through an iolite lens, they could determine the exact position of the sun, and navigate safely.
Hardness: 7.5.

It has been hailed for enhancing intuition and inner knowing.

Like all my jewelry, I made this ring from start to finish.

All metal is reclaimed/recycled .925 sterling silver or .999 fine silver.
