A highly spiritual stone directly connected to the Third Eye, Iolite heightens intuition and insight helping us discern between our higher self and our ego.  Iolite makes us aware of our thought patterns and why we have them to begin with, enabling the higher self to clear old ways of thinking and begin anew.  A great stone for codependency, Iolite encourages us to take responsibility for ourselves, including our actions and behaviors to overcome the debilitating behavior that traps one into a cycle of endless suffering.
