Natural Iolite Indigo Gemstone Crystal Bullet Pendant Necklace
I attached a silver and copper wire bail to a recycled 38 special silver bullet shell casing, and then added a natural indigo purple iolite crystal. This comes with a 24 inch silver filled chain.
The name iolite comes from the Greek word for violet. It is the gemstone version of cordierite. It is often called a water sapphire, and some examples change color depending on the angle and light source. Iolite gem deposits can be found in Canada, Tanzania, Australia, Madagascar, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, India, and Brazil.
Iolite is good for putting a positive spin on negative situations. It can provide calm emotional responses and it reduces stress. It it often used to help with anxiety and depression. Iolite is a balancing stone and can help with disorientation and distraction. It strengthens resolve and can increase self assurance and endurance. It adds positive energy and brings order to chaos and adversity. Iolite is a good stone to use for communication with spirit as it aids in visualization and meditation techniques.
Iolite is another stone that the Vikings may have used to determine the direction of the sun on overcast days. Cordierite crystals can be found on the beaches of Norway. It can be fairly easy to tell the direction of skylight polarization with an iolite crystal. It exhibits strong pleochroism, and the color of the stone will change from more blue to more gray or yellow when pointing towards the sun.
An original Beautiful Bullets design. I have been creating bullet jewelry since 2009 and have designed over a hundred different styles and types. I use recycled bullet shell casings, metal filigrees, Swarovski crystals, natural gemstones and vintage glass. All of the bullet casings I use are recycled so please allow for variations and small imperfections.
I started my bullet jewelry line as a peace project, and I continue to donate part of the sale to different charities. I have sent donations to the Peace Corps, the Patriot Guard Riders, the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, the Sandy Hook School Support Fund, and the USO. Thanks to everyone who has purchased one of these designs and made that possible.
