Iolite palm stones (pocket stones, touch stones, worry stones) fit nicely into the palm of the hand. These tactile stones are beautiful to display and admire but are small enough to place under a pillow or tuck into a bag or pocket. They can be chosen to hold during meditation or to place on a body part for healing and massage.
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.
This stone is said to enhance leadership ability, inner strength and self confidence by strengthening the auric field. It is also said to bring harmony in relationships. Iolite is helpful in fighting addictions and alcoholism.
