Iolite Ring Size 6
Iolite, from the Greek word meaning violet, is a gemstone often called the "water sapphire." Because of its soothing beauty, iolite is quickly becoming popular with gem enthusiasts. Iolite is 7-7.5 on hardness scale. Iolite exhibits pleochroism which is seen as three different color shades in the same stone: violet blue, yellow gray and a light blue when the stone is turned in various lighting. This quality makes iolite a very unique stone.
Care and handling: Iolite is harder than many other gems but should still be protected. It can be cleaned with mild dish soap, using a soft-bristle toothbrush to scrub around any corners.
