“The Vikings’ compass”
Known to geologists as Cordierite, this magnesium iron aluminium cyclosilicate known to most as Iolite, has an adventurous supposed history! Danish archeologist, Thorkild Ramskou, theorized in the 1960s that crystals could have been used as a navigation tool for Vikings when setting out on the sea for exploration, since magnetic compasses were not part of their expedition resources. Iolite (cordierite) deposits located in places like Norway and Greenland, enforced the idea that these navigation stones were possibly cordierite. The spiritual properties of iolite are infused deeply with the idea of navigation including shamanic journeying, past life recall, recovering forgotten or buried parts of self and re-integrating them in positive ways. Calming the overactive mind, and supporting mediums, sensitives, and diviners in the space they tap into to receive messages. This tough stone (hardness level 7-7.5) is a powerful 6th chakra (Third Eye) supporter!
