CRYSTALS & THEIR HEALING PROPERTIES
Sugiltie is a potassium sodium lithium iron manganese aluminium silicate that belongs to the Milarite - Osumilite group of minerals. Milarite - Osumilite is a group of similarly structured cyclosilicates. The primary structural unit of this group is a most unusual double ring. This stone is only rarely found as crystals, it is usually massive in form. They are transparent. translucent to opaque with a vitreous to dull or waxy lustre.
Sugilite is prized for its striking colours of pink, magenta (red-purple), indigo (blue-purple), lavender, violet and purple. Some pieces exhibit banding, mottling and/or patterns, because of the presence of more than one of these colours; some pieces appear bluish purple in daylight and reddish purple under incandescent light.
Sugilite is a somewhat obscure mineral named for the Japanese geologist who discovered the first specimens in 1944, Ken-ichi Sugi. It is becoming very popular in the jewellery trade. It has been described as a purple turquoise although there is no relation between the two minerals.
Sugilite is found in Japan, Canada and most importantly, South Africa.
