Enchanting Iolite Finger Bracelets

Iolite Meaning and Healing Properties

Iolite gemstone is the gem-quality variety of the mineral cordierite. Cordierite is a silicate mineral found in metamorphic and igneous rocks. Iolite was named after the Greek word “Ios” meaning violet. Iolite isn't commonly treated, making it an attractive choice for natural gemstone collectors. Iolite is pleochroic, meaning when you turn it, you’ll see three distinct colors in three directions. This factor makes it hard to cut for jewelry, making it uncommon to find jewelry.

Iolite is known as the “Viking Compass Stone”. According to legend, thin slices of Iolite were used as glare-reducers and polarizing filters to help ancient Viking navigators locate the sun on cloudy days. This assisted the Vikings at sea to determine their own location.

Iolite helps you open your mind to visions and guidance from spirit guides, angels and the Universe. I love to recommend Iolite to anyone who is trying to discover their path or seeking guidance for a decision. Iolite has a gentle energy that helps relax the mind to receive wisdom.

Use + Crystal pairings

Iolite can be placed on the Third Eye during meditation to help awaken your spiritual gifts and activate your inner knowing (intuition). Iolite has been one of my favorite crystals for navigating on my personal spiritual awakening journey.

Moldavite + Iolite

This is definitely a strong pairing I would recommend to someone who is ready to take their spiritual journey deeper. This is a great pairing for anyone who is looking to awaken their gifts and use them to help make the world a better place. Moldavite is my go-to catalyst for change and Iolite will always be one of my favorite crystals to use in divination and for guidance.

Danburite + Iolite

This is the perfect combination to use for receiving Divine wisdom and guidance. You can use this pairing when you want to communicate with higher realms because it will raise your vibration and open the mind to receive wisdom.

Thulite + Iolite

This is a great pairing for anyone seeking insight on their feelings and how to communicate them with love and grace. Meditating with Thulite and Iolite will open you up to receive wisdom from above on how to create more love and harmony in your life.

Affirmation: I am ready to embrace my higher self.
