Iolite is a trichroic gemstone, meaning a stone that can have 3 color shades depending on the lighting. Colors can a range from an indigo blue to a violet blue color. Natural occurring inclusions are common.
Iolite is called the stone of vision to bring out one's creative expression. Iolite comes from the Greek word meaning violet and is a newer gemstone on the market.
The first gem quality stones were found in 1996 in Wyoming. In Grizzly Creek, Wyoming the largest iolite crystal was found weighing over 24,000 carats.
Today Iolite can be found in many places around the world with the largest supply coming from India.
Moonstone is a natural gemstone in the feldspar family of minerals that is well known for its blue shimmering flashes of color. This shimmering effect is called adularescence. Moonstone has a unique crystal structure that creates this optical phenomena. Alternating layers of albite inclusions mixed with layers of orthoclase create a whitish-blue sheen of color as light enters the stone and bounces back. Some moonstone will display tiny dots of rainbow colors.
Moonstone can be found in many places around the world, with the most popular deposits in India and Sri Lanka. It is the birthstone for those born in June.
