When you’re ready to take on challenges headfirst, it’s time to reach for the Iolite. An Iolite Sphere encourages you to think through your choices and habits. It won’t let you settle for routine, and instead inspires you to do things differently to get a different result.
Said to be used by the ancient Vikings as a lens to see during their ocean voyages, Iolite is also known as the Viking Stone. Iolite enhances curiosity and helps build relationships (but no, it’s not going to help you manifest Travis Fimmel, we already checked).
One of the best stones to use in psychic healing and spiritual activities, Iolite can open the bearer to psychic talents, is excellent for meditation and astral travel and can stimulate clear psychic visions. If you have any more luck with the Travis Fimmel thing (or Karen Hassan if that’s your vibe) – let us know.
