RARE High Quality Sugilite 8x6mm Barrel Beads, 17.5 inch Strands

RARE Sugilite BIG Graduated Rondel 18 inch Strand 15mm-9mm Graduated

These strands have tons of bright purple mixed with super dark purple to black.  This is very high quality Sugilite.  Sugilite has become almost impossible to find and is super expensive when you do find it, this quality is exceptional and this price is very affordable for Sugilite.  I am almost out of my stock pile of good sugilite and do not know if I will find anymore. 

Sugilite gets its attractive purple color from traces of manganese. It can range in color from pinkish-purple to deep bluish-purple. The most highly valued sugilite gemstones are a uniform and intense purple. A great deal of sugilite has patches, veins or layers, and attractive or interesting patterns are also desirable in sugilite gemstones.

 In 1980 sugilite was officially classified as a rare gem, which caused its price to increase. Since then, additional deposits have been discovered, but since these are small, it remains a rare gem.

 Sugilite was first discovered in Japan. Significant amounts of gem-quality material occurs in polycrystalline aggregate form in bedded manganese deposits at the Wessels Mine in South Africa. Small amounts of rare pink crystals have been found in Madhya Pradesh, India. Other deposits have recently been found in Australia (New South Wales), Tajikistan, Italy and Canada (Quebec).
