Additional gem information:
From www.geology.com, Iolite is a blue pleochroic gem that has an appearance similar to sapphire and tanzanite. It can serve as an alternative stone to either of these gems and is much lower in price. Unlike sapphire and tanzanite, iolite in the gem market is not known to receive heat, irradiation, or other treatments to improve its color. That is appealing to many people.
