Sugilite is a rare potassium sodium lithium iron manganese aluminum silicate mineral with a hexagonal crystal system and a hardness of 6 to 6.5. Its color ranges from pale lilac to deep purple. Almost all Sugilite on the market comes from manganese mines in South Africa.
Sugilite offers a multitude of beneficial properties—protection from negative influences, enhancement of one’s ability to ground spiritual energies, the awakening of the crown chakra, the emanation of the pure Violet Ray of purification and a strong influence for healing. Carrying or wearing a piece of Sugilite sets up a “shield of Light” around the wearer. It is the most powerful stone for calling in the Violet Flame of purification, which can burn away “gray spots” in the auric field, removing negative attachments and karmic influences.
