IOLITE Healing Properties
Iolite is a deep blue to violet-blue (indigo) natural crystal with
infinite possibilities to open up the intuition. A stone of visions and
dreams that one may use in healing ceremonies, and which shamans
use to reveal the gift of prophecy. A great stone to use during
meditation and may strengthen psychic abilities. This crystal may
sometimes be mistaken for sapphire, yet has a more spiritual vibration
since it is on the violet ray. The deeper the inky blue-purple colour,
more powerful the stone, and ideally you will want a deeply inky,
barely translucent stone, for more powerful work - unless drawn to a
weaker stone to start off with. Sometimes iolite can appear grey-blue
or even yellow-blue depending on the angle of the light.

chakra popped powerfully about half a minute later. Your body will
recognise the intense energy of the violet ray.) **Please consult your
doctor if it is safe for you to take iodine.
