Royal Iolite Necklace
One of the deepest and most beautiful natural blue stones in the world.
Indeed the embodiment of everything royal, Iolite showcases a unique property called "pleochroism," where it produces different colors when the stone is seen in different positions. Overall, Iolite appears as violet-blue or indigo, but in different positions may shift to a honey color or even to a clear light blue. It is also referred to as a "water sapphire" or as the "Viking's compass" as it was Viking explorers who first used thin pieces of Iolite as a polarizing filter to determine their location at sea. Truly a stunning stone.
Sterling silver and natural iolite. Approx 6mm x 6mm. On a 16" rolo chain.
