Raw Iolite Necklace (WB24)
Iolite is one of those rare stones that changescolour depending on the light. On its own it is indigo blue, but hold it up to thelight and the stones take on shades of lilac and violet. This is known aspleochroism and this colour shifting quality reminds me of the blue, indigo, violet colours in the rainbow spectrum. Iolite is also known as water sapphire.
These are raw, rough cut, iolite stones which add to the natural beauty. I've knotted them on a mid-blue silk and added a sterling silver extender chain finished with a little sterling silver heart and another, facetted, iolite bead.
The necklace is 16.5" (425mm) which can be extended to 18" with the extender chain. The clasp is a sterling silver hook which can fit into any of the links of the chain.
For a sophisticated - yet bohemian - look!
