$ 35.00

Sugilite is a rare pink to purple cyclosilicate mineral with a complex chemical formula. It was discovered in 1944 on Iwagi Islet in southwestern Japan. It wasn't until 1975, when the purple variety sugilite was discovered in a manganese mine near Hotazel, South Africa. It's the manganese content that gives it that deep, purple color. This small but significant deposit became the first source of gem-quality sugilite.
