IOLITE GemShoppy January 10, 2015 Gemstones One of the major stones used in healing, guided meditations and during astral travel adventures. It works through the third eye/crown area. The “correct” positioning of the stone needs to be intuited individually. The purpose for this stone is to enhance the evolution of spiritual growth as painlessly and effortlessly as possible. The electrical charge from the gem/crystal boosts the strength in aligning the auric field with the spiritual bodies. It balances the yin and yang of the male and female energy. It brings a balance to self-enabling a greater sense of responsibility in the management of relationships and money management. It releases disharmony allowing the movement towards perfection, not only in this world but also in the next world. It allows for patience as the acknowledger of access to inner knowledge, and in the knowing of direction. It is called the Gem of the Vikings. When Leif Eriksson and the other legendary Viking explorers ventured far out into the Atlantic Ocean, away from any coastline that could help them determine position, they had a secret gem weapon: iolite. The Viking mariners used thin pieces of iolite as the world’s first polarizing filter. Looking through an iolite lens, they could determine the exact position of the sun, and navigate safely to the new world and back.
