IOLITE is a magnesium aluminum silicate mineral with an orthorhombic I crystal structure and a hardness of 7 to 7.5. The name lolite comes from the stone’s violet color. The most important Iolite deposits are in Brazil, Madagas-car, Burma, India and Sri Lanka.
lolite offers to take one on the inner path to the deep self. It is an excellent stone to use in shamanic journeying. It assists by increasing the vividness and detail of inner visions and by calling up symbols from deep in the psyche that will illuminate the issues one must face for continued growth. It increases one’s capacity to move into areas of old fear, teaching one that the exploration of one’s wounds is the most direct path to healing. Iolite is also a stone of inner treasures. It helps one to move to the depths of one’s unconscious and to uncover the lost parts of oneself. It is an excellent aid for exploring past lives and their karmic lessons. lolite assists in blending normal conscious thinking with intuitive knowing.
