lolite is the trade name given to the blue/violet variety of cordierite, a magnesium, aluminium silicate mineral. Fine Iolite can display a deep blue-violet through to a pale blue-violet colour with some more vivid stones challenging the likes of Tanzanite. This colour, derived from iron, is naturally occurring and cannot be enhanced by man, unlike other blue-hued rivals from inexpensive Blue Topaz through to the finest blue Sapphires where treatments are often essential to alter colour and clarity to a more desirable and saleable level. The lack of consistency with Iolite’s colour and with no current treatments available to correct it is possibly a contributeing factor to its lack of popularity within the industry.
Unearthed in metamorphic and igneous rocks, Iolite can be found in various locations around the world, Sri Lanka, India, Tanzania and Australia being the most prominent. With a hardness of 7- 7.5 on the Mohs scale is suitable for rings as well as other forms of jewellery and is often an affordable substitute for Tanzanite and Sapphire when rich colour and clarity are present.

Yes, our crystals are ethically sourced & sold.
Ethical mining/sourcing refers to the conditions in which a crystal is unearthed and the people and/or businesses that do it. Whilst a mineral may be sourced ethically from the earth, many stones are sent to factories in other countries for cutting and polishing into spheres and generators.
The label of ethics also applies to the selling and consumer purchasing.
Crystals must be correctly identified, certified as natural with any treatments disclosed. Too often crystals are lab grown or treated in a lab and sold as natural. This is incredibly important to us (and our in-house gemmologist) so each piece is tested and certified and accompanied by and authenticity card.
We pride ourselves on our crystal ethics, from earth to home.
