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 would be very easy to use.  The reflected colors are quite dazzling and even when in non-reflecting light, the look is attractive and intriguing.  Great cutting and quality.
