Iolite, also known as cordierite or water sapphire, is a strongly pleochroic blue to violet stone found in several locations throughout the world. It is also called “Viking’s Compass” as the Vikings were reputed to have used the stone pleochroism to determine the direction of the sun on overcast days.
