There is more to iolite than meets the eye.
While we see the world with our two eyes, we see ourselves through our invisible third eye, located in the center of the forehead. Qualities associated with the third eye chakra include the sense of intuition, mystery, telepathic ability, dreams and imagination. It is as much about what you see as what you don't see, but know is there.
Iolite, also known as cordierite, is the perfect stone for the third eye chakra. When seen from one direction, it is blue violet but can change to gray with tinges of yellow when the stone is viewed from a different angle. Because iolite is semi-transluscent, the viewer is able see inside the stone. It's energy is both creative and deeply thoughtful. What you see is not all there is to this gemstone.
