Iolite is a lovely indigo color and is also referred to as Cordierite, Dichroite, and Indialite. It is a silicate of magnesium and aluminum. Its name is derived from the Greek word ‘ios’, which means violet, and pertains to the gemstone’s violet color. We also carry a long version of them with a long ear wire (see picture for comparison).
Other small earrings options available. See last picture for examples
