Iolite Faceted Teardrop

6x8mm Center Drilled Drop IHD: 0.33mm

Unit: each
$2.00 USD

Early in the 18th Century, Iolite was very popular in jewelry...but the love for this soft, blue stone goes all the way back to ancient times; the Vikings used thin slices of Iolite to look at the sky and navigate based on the position of the sun. It is sometimes called the Ocean Sapphire and can cast a deep blue/violet cast or grey coloring, depending on the direction you hold it. 

Use our 24-26g “dot” head pins to add a dazzling drop to a Timeless Treasures Necklace or a Bollywood Earring!

Like all fine gemstones, the holes are very small. For wire-wrapping, 26-28 gauge will work. For knotting use Griffin #2. For stringing wire, Soft Touch in .010mm. For a needle, a Flexible Eye is the best choice.

Hand cut in India by master gem cutters. As these are natural stones, the hole size and color may vary from one to another. We will do our best to match pairs for earrings!
