Iolite, known as the Vikings’ Compass, due to its ability to determine the direction of the sun on overcast days. When the legendary Viking mariners sailed the wide ocean, they used thin pieces of iolite as the world’s first polarizing filter. Looking through an iolite lens, they could determine the exact position of the sun, by looking through the gemstone at a certain angle. Vikings never used to get lost on the high seas.
