BISE NO. 1
You’ll find the way.
Iolite has inherited pleochroism properties from it’s ‘parent’ stone- Cordierite. This causes color shifts when observed from different angles. This is neat because Vikings could use Iolite, or clear Cordierite, to steer on cloudy overcast days, observing the polarity of the light angles based on how the stone color changed. This sight and delight also gives Iolite another name- Vikings Compass.
This isa magician shape-shifter stone. Without the light, is seems like an endless dark. But with the light, a world of blue comes to life.
Set in sterling with gold-fill accent. 16-18 inches, adjustable.
