Iolite is sometimes referred to as the Viking’s compass. This gemstone is a light polarizer that helped Viking sailors navigate when the sun was hidden by clouds. An iolite lens enabled Vikings to determine the position of the sun even on overcast days, making it possible for them to navigate longer and further than before.

Metaphysically, Iolite is a vision stone that heightens intuition. It is thought to give you a clearer vision and help you achieve emotional distance when you need to process challenging life situations. Iolite is associated with the zodiac signs Libra, Sagittarius and Taurus.
