Sugilite Metaphysical & Healing Energy
Posted on 23 March 2020
Sugilite is a a rare purple to pink/magenta gemstone with a complex mineral composition: KNa2(Fe, Mn, Al)2Li3Si12O30 potassium, sodium, lithium ferric iron silicate. It has a hardness of 6-6.5.
Sugilite is a more recent gem discovery and was first discovered by Ken-Ichi Sugi in Japan in 1944, and named after him. Sugilite was only named and published much later in 1976.
The Sugilite we are familiar with today in the gem market is a bright, saturated violet-to-magenta material from South Africa. Much different looking from the yellow-colourless small crystals first discovered in Japan. The South African lustrous, violet Sugilite are coloured due to naturally occurring manganese impurities.
In 1979, Sugilite was found in large quantities at the Wessels mine in Kuruman district, part of the Northern Cape province of South Africa. The Wessels mine is a manganese mine that began operating in May,1973. Gem quality Sugilite was found by accident when the roof of a shaft caved in during the development of the mine.
The rarest, dark purple translucent material is known as ‘Gel Sugilite’ and is highly valuable.
The Wessels mine is mostly exhausted and mined out, adding to the rarity and expensive price point of Sugilite.
Other names for Sugilite are Royal Azel or Lavulite for the more lavender material, Gel Sugilite for deep purple translucent material, and Wesselite after the Wessels Mine where a lot of the Sugilite in the market was mined.
Sugilite is commonly found with other minerals, Bustamite and Richterite as well as black Manganese. Bustamite is orange-reddish-brown and Richterite is a deep blue colour, both are often found with Sugilite.
