For the hoop-loving girl! At the centre of these raw brass hoop earrings is a beautiful blue-purple, faceted Lolite Briolette. Lolite is commonly known as “water sapphire” and reminds us of a clear, night sky, just around twilight. The Vikings used iolite stones in determining the position of the sun for purposes of navigation. Lolite helped the Vikings see more clearly, as it is able to cancel out the effects of haze, mist and clouds. In addition, this stone was very popular in jewelry in the the 18th century. However, it is used less frequently today.
