Iolite is a Dispeller Energizer Crystal. Sometimes in your life you need to rid yourself of things you have but no longer want. You want to get rid of pains, sickness, worry, and a host of unpleasant feelings. For these needs, the Dispeller talismans that form in the orthorhombic system are needed.
The Dispellers are also known as the Restorers. These crystals are used to put things back right again after they are out of balance. If you were happy, then became plagued by doubt, these crystals help you to focus and magnify your energy to rid yourself of the doubt and restore your happiness.
Combining that energy with their earth power as Energizers makes Iolites perfect crystals for focusing and amplifying the Universal Life Force and your energy to accomplish your quests. Everyone gets tired and discouraged from time to time. Iolites are a good antidote to allow you to keep your energy level up and your efforts focused.
Indigo is the color of virtue and maturity. It is the color of the true birthstone of those born in midwinter (January 20–February 18). Indigo crystals are rare and valuable. They combine the intuition of the violet ray with the trust of the pure blue ray. These Iolites are excellent natural birthstones for those born in midwinter. Try one and see.
Iolite is used in honoring and asking for help from Athena, the Greek Goddess of War.
Melody reports that Iolite should be used to correct imbalances in the area between the Third Eye and the Crown Chakra.
Iolite has water energy. Water energy is the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful. The water element brings the power of regeneration and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life.
Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area. Its flowing energy will assure a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows.
To keep your life moving forward towards your goals use the water elements energy.
Iolite is used to treat imbalances in the Crown Chakra. When the crown chakra is out of balance or its energy is blocked, you will feel clumsy, uncoordinated, and at sorts with life. You will stumble in both movement and thought. You will be uninspired and out of step. The world will seem to be spinning, and you will be unsure of who you are or why you even exist. You will be rigid in your thinking, and be spiritually adrift. Your consciousness will be limited, and possibilities will not appear to you. You will have difficulty understanding relationships, ideas, and dreams.
Iolite, according to Robert Simmons in the Book of Stones, is a key to successful shamanic journeys. It helps conquer fear, and helps the mind understand the heart. George Kunz in The Curious Lore of Precious Stones reports that Iolite is a Stone of Faith. Melody calls Iolite "the Violet Stone" and tells us to use it in the "third eye" "crown" area of healing. She reports its energy will eliminate dissonance in relationships.
