Sugilite is a rare mineral that is a complex combination of potassium, sodium, manganese, lithium, aluminium and iron. It is very hard to find it in a pure form, as it usually occurs in massive deposits along with other minerals including Manganese (black), Pyrolucite (silvery-grey) and Bustamite (pinkish-brown), and only rarely forms (small) prismatic crystals. The best Sugilite has a predominance of the violet / pink / magenta colouring, and is very expensive. Material that shows less violet or pink offers the same general attributes - but the more pink and violet, the greater the power. Refer also to separate pages for more about Bustamite and Pyrolucite!)
Along with the amethyst, this is the premier stone for Archangel Tzadkiel, and is a powerful carrier of the Violet Ray and the Violet Flame. It is protective, yet expansive; purifying; activating; invigorating and balancing. Sugilite works best with the crown and third eye chakras, but is also powerful to use at the Universal, Soma, Alpha and Seat of the Soul centres of the Unified Body. It has the added capability of grounding the Highest Light frequencies into the energy field, all the way through the core and down into the planet - thus by using sugilite we benefit and aid our Earth.
