Manganese Sugilite Crystals
Manganese Sugilite Tumbled Stones
Sugilite is a rare and highly sought after mineral that comes primarily from an area in South Africa known as the Kalahari Manganese Field. Based in the Northern Cape province, this gigantic area is the largest land based manganese deposit on Earth. Sugilite is becoming rarer by the day and the finest grade material commands exceptional prices.
The shades of red and purple seen in the mineral sugilite are caused in part by manganese. The amount of manganese present in manganese sugilite is considerably higher so the colours are so dark the stone could almost be mistaken for being black.
These magnificent manganese sugilite tumbled stones have an exceptional polish and each piece is amazingly tactile. This is definitely a stone that you'll love having as part of your collection.
Although often pronounced with a soft 'g' as in the word genius, sugilite should actually be pronounced with a hard 'g' as in gun. This is because the name of the person after whom this mineral was named is pronounced in this way.
No two of these manganese sugilite stones are the same so weights and sizes do vary slightly from piece to piece. They're available in medium and large sizes.
