"Sea Guide" is inspired by Iolite or 'Water Sapphire', a dichroic gemstone that is typically deep indigo blue that can shift to light blue, green, honey gold or grey. Known as the "Vikings Compass", pieces of iolite were used to determine the true direction of the sun and navigate the ocean. Sea Guide is a variegated and subtly speckled colourway of deep blues to grey blues to icy green blues. On the Sylph Lace base this colourway presents a slightly brighter look with a light sheen.
