Iolite is the gemstone variety of the mineral Cordierite. The major deposits are found in Brazil but it also comes from India, Sri Lanka, Burma, and Madagascar. The meaning of its name comes from the Greek word meaning violet. Iolite Cordierite may be seen as different colors in different lights and from different directions. Iolite is typically light to dark blue and violet, although it can also occur in various shades of yellow, gray, green or brown.
Cordierite is a silicate mineral that is found in metamorphic and igneous rocks. It is typically blue to violet in color and is one of the most strongly pleochroic minerals. Cordierite has a chemical composition of (Mg,Fe)2Al4Si5O18 and forms a solid solution series with sekaninaite.
"Cordierite" is a name used by geologists. When the mineral is transparent and of gem quality, it is known as "iolite" in the gem and jewelry trade. Two older names for the mineral are "dichroite" and "water sapphire." The name dichroite means "two color rock," inspired by cordierite's pleochroic property. The name water sapphire is also related to pleochroism. It was used because a specimen could have the color of a sapphire when viewed from one direction, but if the stone was rotated it could appear to be as clear as water.'Dichroite' is another synonym for iolite in reference to its pleochroic ability; 'dichroite' is a Greek word which loosely translates as 'two-colored rock'. Iolite is also known as 'the Viking stone' because according to Norse legend, Vikings used iolite as a polarizing filter to help them find the sun on cloudy days. It is believed that the Vikings discovered iolite deposits throughout Norway and Greenland.(The above information is provided solely for informational purpose.
