This is an old piece,made 50 years ago (on 1970). Inlay with Gold between the stones. Sugilite is a relatively rare cyclosilicate of the Osumilite group, a potassium sodium lithium iron manganese aluminum silicate mineral. Its form is usually granular to massive, though rarely it forms in tiny prismatic crystals. It is named for Dr. Ken-ichi Sugi, a Japanese petrologist who discovered the first specimens in 1944 on Iwagi Islet, Japan.
It is the bright purple lapidary rock found in South Africa that brought its gem properties to popularity, especially as a New Age Stone in the 1980’s. Its color ranges from pale lilac or pink, to reddish-violet into deep purple, with a rich magenta-purple shade considered to be the most precious, especially in the translucent form known as “gel. Sugilite is one of the very best crystals for those who are highly sensitive and take on whatever energies are around them.
Wear or carry Sugilite to create a warm, protective “shield of Light,” keeping the wearer impervious to negativity and the disharmony of others. In times of discouragement or despair, place Sugilite on the Third Eye to draw in comforting energy and a flow of gentle, loving information from the spiritual world to bring peace and relaxation to the emotional body.
