About the stone

Blue Topaz

Blue Topaz is the Birthstone for November.

Blue Topaz has been used in jewellery for over 2000 years. It was once believed that Topaz would protect the wearer from dark magic. In the 12th century Saint Hildegard, a German nun, believed that Blue Topaz could cure blindness by soaking the stone in wine for 3 days and then rubbing it gently on the eyes.

Blue Topaz is a calming stone. It is thought to help with communication, creativity and the ability to express yourself. Great for writers block and to aid with public speaking. It is also thought to help with decision making, promotes concentration and helps recognize truth and wisdom.

Iolite

Iolite is the traditional 21st anniversary gemstone.

The name for Iolite comes from ‘ios’, the Greek word for violet and is commonly known as “water sapphire”. 

Iolite is pleochroic- meaning it transmits light differently when viewed from different directions. The Vikings used this effect by using thin slices of the stone as a light polarizer to navigate their trips. By observing the sky through iolites, the Viking navigators were able to locate the exact position of the sun on overcast days and led to another name used for Iolite, “Viking’s Compass”. Only officially named in 1912, iolite has been used and admired for centuries.

Iolite is thought of as a vision stone. It is believed to aid in understanding and releasing the causes of addiction and helps to express your true self, freed from the expectations of those around you. Iolite is thought of as a stone of the muses, activating the visionary, creative side of the mind, and accessing thoughts and ideas beyond the ordinary. It inspires creative self-expression through writing, song, movement and other artistic endeavours.
