Iolite Tumblestones

Lovely Iolite tumblestones, measuring between 20-30 MM approximately. These pieces have a lovely dark violet blue colour throughout, with occasional lighter patches or white bands and cracks.

These stones make excellent display pieces, and would therefore suit being displayed in a small vase or a bowl very nicely. They make a decent contrast stone with clear or white stones, too.


Because these stones are currently quite hard for us to get a hold of, they are sold singly on our website. Apologies!
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!

What are tumblestones?

Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
