Iolite is a vision stone. It stimulates connection to inner knowing. It is used in Shamanic ceremonies and assists in journeys out of the body and in the past has been used as an amulet to guild travelers safely home.
Psychologically, Iolite aids in understanding and releasing the causes of addiction and helps you to express your true self, freed from the expectations of those around you. A good crystal if family members have over-high expectations of you or if you are in a career that was expected of you.
Iolite creates a strong constitution. It reduces fatty deposits in the body (Yippee!!), and supports regeneration of the liver. It is also said to kill bacteria! Can assist eyesight, migraines and headaches, can prevent insomnia, nightmares or sleep disturbances.
