Iolite gemstones are a beautiful watery violet color, with the name coming from the Greek word Ios, meaning violet. Iolite gemstones display a unique pleochroic property, which means that when you rotate the stone and observe the different angles and facets you can see three distinctly different colors in the three crystal directions. Some refer to this gem as water sapphire since it displays a bluish violet color in one direction and a pale yellow to colorless hue in the other. Top quality Iolite gemstones are a great, more affordable alternative to Tanzanite gemstones. In fact, the first Tanzanite gemstones were mistakenly thought to be Iolite. The lovely Iolite color is totally natural, these gems are completely untreated. AfricaGems is the number one trusted source for standard gems.
