Iolite is a gemstone that is often mistaken for a Sapphire; actually its alternative names are Ocean Sapphire or Water Sapphire. Iolite exhibits a character called Pleochroism, which refers to the ability of the crystal to change color depending on the angle that light hits it. It derives its name from the Greek word Ion, which means purple. The color, when properly cut is a very attractive Bluish Purple. It was very valuable to the Vikings who used it to determine the exact position of the sun when they were at sea. Despite the fact that it is so beautiful, Iolite is quite affordable and people who cannot afford Sapphires prefer to buy this gemstone. Even though it is hard, it can easily get damaged by serious blows, so it should be protected from such. This is one of the stones that need an experienced cutter, since of cut from the wrong direction; it will never show its color to its best. Iolite is very popular in jewelry today!
