Iolite is popularly known as water sapphire, although it is not a type of sapphire at all. It is, however, one of the best stones to use in psychic, healing, and spiritual activities. It can open one to psychic talents and expand them, and is excellent for use on the third eye and crown chakras.
In ancient times, the Vikins used thin sheets of iolite as a lens to protect their eyes from the sun's glare off the water and is often known as the Viking stone. It is said Iolite can bring clear psychic vision.
It is said to also enhance one's curiosity. It is an escellent stone for meditation and astral travel and helps one grow spiritually in a gentle fashion. Iolite is considered a very strong "Shaman" stone, and can stimulate visions. It's quite helpful when dealing with addictions, including alcholism and assists in detoxification as well as maintaining sobriety.
