Iolite is one of the major stones for use in the third-eye/crown chakra areas during healing, during guided mediations, and during astral travel adventures. It is useful for the stimulation of visions and has also been used in shamanic healing ceremonies to influence the benevolence of spirits. The polite ring of the shaman is worn to ensure accuracy within the vision. It is quite powerful medicine.
Iolite helps one to change painlessly–the change being toward spiritual growth and enhanced illusion.
