“Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely. ”
― Edna St. Vincent Millay
When I tried to insert an Iolite and Sunstone photo here, this is what came up. Clearly this is a uniting above and below stone! And one that is perfect for helping us to explore the luminescent darkness of winter, illuminating our way with vital sun-energy. It is the perfect stone to overcome the winter blues.
Sunstone and Iolite can be beneficial in helping the being to see out of the darkness brought on by depression, negativity, hurt and low states. It stimulates the mind to look out of the clouded vision, bringing a sense of knowing there is a light at the end of the tunnel. KSC Crystals
And it most definitely helps us find the gifts embraced within the darkness of our own shadowlands. Midwinter is the perfect time to journey inward with the crystal to find our true self hidden there:
I really loved the raw quality of these beautiful stones, for me it has a much more immediate effect than the tumbled version I’d handled before. When I put a picture up on my members’ community Facebook page on the Scorpio new moon and asked for comments, these two summed it up so well:
Sun and water, warmth and coolness, speak to and for all of us who are bridges between those who are artificially separated or alienated. I love them. Thanks for sharing.
As soon as I tuned in, I received an unconditional love waves of gentle breezes , very joyfully powerful and cleansing. So very appropriate and timely for me in this New Moon.

Here’s what I’ve said in The Crystal Companion (available in March) about the individual crystals:
A vision stone, Iolite clears thought forms and facilitates visualisation. It stimulates intuitive insight and inner knowing. A journeying facilitator, Iolite releases causes of addiction or obsession. Bringing about inner balance and reorientation, it supports expressing your true self freed from expectations by those around you. As it encourages taking responsibility for your Self, it overcomes co-dependency within a partnership or parental relationship. It dissolves discord that has occurred. In contact with the auric field, Iolite gives off an electrical charge that re-energies the field and aligns the subtle bodies.
Sunstone revitalizes the body and lifts dark moods. If you have lost your enthusiasm for life, Sunstone remotivates, facilitating self-empowerment and instilling awareness of your own value. It dissolves codependency, and supports independence. This highly energetic stone overcomes procrastination, giving the impetuous to move forward. It detaches from feelings of being sabotaged or discriminated against, encouraging optimism and enthusiasm. The crystal acts as a spiritual compass and heightens intuition. Removing hooks located in the chakras or energy bodies, it is extremely beneficial for tie-cutting with energy vampires or previous partners.
Put the two crystals together and you have an amazing third eye opener and metaphysical hoover that clears past, present and future in a heartbeat, replacing it with re-energising, vital life force. A bridge between the worlds, it ignites your spiritual vision, kickstarts your creativity, and empowers your whole being.
