Sugilite is a rare mineral named after Ken-ichi Sugi, a Japanese geologist who first discovered the material in 1944 on the Japanese island Shikoku. Sugilite is commonly pronounced SOO-jee-lite but is more accurately pronounced SOO-ghee-lite after the man it is named for. Sugilite has a vivid purple color and is usually opaque to translucent. Some of the semi-transparent stones have facets. The gemstone is used to produce appealing beads, cabochons and decorative objects. Sugilite is also known as wesselite, after the purple color material was discovered in the Wessels Manganese Mine in South Africa. Sugilite is known by other names including purple turquoise, cybelene, lavulite, luvulite, royal azel, royal lavulite and royal lazelle.
Sugilite is not a well-known gemstone. Yet, on the red carpet of the 2013 Critics' Choice Awards, Naomi Watts was seen wearing a pair of sugilite drop earrings.
Sugilite is also a character in Cartoon Network's Steven Universe and is voiced by singer Nicki Minaj. The character Sugilite was created when the characters Garnet and Amethyst were synchronized dancing and became fused together.
Sugilite is believed to generate positive energy to protect against and overcome negative emotions and situations. Thought to be a nurturing gemstone, sugilite offers release from worries. It also promotes positive emotions to help relieve stress, establish peace of mind and emotional healing. To metaphysical adherents, sugilite is a stone of forgiveness and instills the deep satisfaction of all-abiding freedom. Sugilite is thought to be useful to enliven the crown chakra. Sugilite brings spiritual and unconditional love in through the crown and down to the base chakra by infusing the body with light, aligning all the chakras as it goes.
