A gorgeous sugilite sphere with unmistakable colour and striking markings. Most of the world's sugilite and certainly the finest grade material comes from the Kalahari Manganese Field. One of the geological wonders of the world, this area in the Northern Cape of South Africa is estimated to be approximately two billion years old.
Sugilite is extremely rare so finding any material at all is now extremely difficult. As a result the supply chain is drying up and prices have never been higher. Even for those with good money to spend it's still exceptionally difficult to find any fine grade sugilite.
Despite being in regular contact with several of our suppliers in South Africa, none have been able to source any new material for some years.
