Iolite (also known as cordierite) is a magnesium iron aluminum silicate. This mineral is also pleochroic which means that it appears yellowish or bluish depending on the angle at which it is viewed. This sapphire look-alike is known as the vikings compass because it was used to determine the direction of the sun on overcast days.

The orange-gold hue of sunstone is due to reflections from minute scales of red copper within this aventurine-feldspar. It is related to labradorite, another type of feldspar, and often thought of as the sister stone.

While iolite is said to enhance leadership ability, inner strength and self confidenc, sunstone is believed to heighten intuition and to instill a feeling of joy.
