These fascinating stones join together the distinctive violet-blue of Iolite with reflective platelets of hematite.  This is a gorgeous example; the color of the Iolite is great, the platelets are oriented superbly well and the size is nothing short of remarkable. In fact, this is one of the largest stones that we have sourced in this, the highest quality for this material. The reflected colors are quite dazzling and even when in non-reflecting light, the look is attractive and intriguing.  Great cutting and unmatched size.
