Metaphysical Attributes
Being very difficult to find, I particularly treasure Iolite as a “Vision Stone” that activates the 3rd Eye, so it can be used in spiritual journeying. On the physical level it is helpful for the liver (detoxification), migraine headaches, sinuses, respiratory system.  Emotionally, this is an excellent stone to use when recovering from any addiction (food, smoking, drug, co-dependency) as it helps one see and understand the causes of addiction and then overcome them.

In my crystal healing practice I use Iolite as one of the top healing stones for relationships.  It can inspire finding new friends and attracting friendly assistance, while it also increases the self-confidence to approach new people.  It releases discord in any type of relationship and may support breaking co-dependency and any other type of addiction.  Iolite is well known as a vision stone and inner knowing, so it can be used either for meditation or dreamwork.  Put it under the pillow or hold during meditation for shamanic journeys.

Physical Healing: Helps to create robust constitution, supports detoxification of the kidneys and liver.  Known to lower fevers, malaria.  Very effective in treating migraines and the respiratory system.
Mental/Emotional: Helps to uncover the causes of addictions. See above.
