Sugilite Healing Properties

Gorgeous tumbled Sugilite from the Kalahari Desert. Sugilite is the deep purple and pink shades found in this stone. It is mixed with black Manganese and a rare cherry-red mineral called Inesite. Sugilite is a wonderful stone for self-acceptance, especially if you are neurodivergent or feel like you don't fit in anywhere. These tumbled Sugilites are friendly little souls that will remind you that your uniqueness is valuable and that the world is a better place because you are in it.

Ethically Sourced Sugilite

Know where your crystals come from

This Sugilite comes form a mine in the Kalahari manganese fields in Northern Cape, South Africa. While most manganese mining is done in an open pit, these mines are underground and have a lower environmental impact.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Sugilite Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published November 2015  •  Updated June 2022  •  Read Time: 6 minutes
Sugilite is a famous purple crystal, but did you know the first one ever discovered was actually yellow?  The yellow variety was found in Japan in the 1940s, while the purple variety was first seen in South Africa in the 1970s.  They looked so different that it was several years before anyone realized they were the same mineral. Some collectors still call purple stone by its 1970s tradename of Lavulite.  Sugilite grows in metamorphic rocks rich in black manganese.  It is a stone of love, […]

    Absolutely love this stone!!! I was not sure exactly how big it would be but it was a really good size for pocket carry and I have had trouble finding sugulite pieces locally. I carry this with me everyday in order to help me in my journey. Thank you!

    Beautiful, high quality crystal. I have purchased at least a handful of crystals from this shop in a short amount of time. Julie is passionate and knows her stuff. I love that she only purchases crystals that have been ethically sourced.

    As always, so much fun shopping at Moonrise Crystals! Got my package yesterday. The Sugilite is a very precious reminder of my dear friend! I love the energy!

  4. Kristin J. (Georgia) (verified owner)

    Today I had the pleasure of opening my own latest package of crystalline goodness from your shop :). I am officially in love with everything you picked out for me. Thank you. Julie!

    I cannot decide which of the crystals feels the best today. Every time I hold one of them and switch to another my brain just sighs with happiness. The sugilite is so super spready and gorgeous that for a moment I was convinced it had to be the prettiest piece of charoite I’d ever seen. I literally double-checked my order to be sure.

    The sugilite you sent just arrived. I love it. It looks like a little Dutch shoe, and it’s the color of the delphiniums. Be-witching, be-wizarding purple.

    Good tumbled sugilite is so difficult to come by, but I knew you wouldn’t disappoint me. The stone looks black at first glance, but I took it into the sunlight, and found out it was mainly purple and brown with little dark rivers running through it. I love it! It is so hard to put down!

  13. Kimberly K. (Pennsylvania) (verified owner)

    It arrived quickly and it looks and feels great.

  14. Patti N. (Texas) (verified owner)

    I received the Sugilite today and I just love it! Exquisite in every way—it feels good in the hand and so smooth. The colors are fabulous—I looked at it in the sunlight like you said and couldn’t believe my eyes! It will be one of my favorite stones and I thank you so much for picking such a beautiful one for me. What a good eye you have—-all of your crystals are memorable. You made my day. I shine a flashlight on it too just to admire the markings—had no idea a Sugilite could be that beautiful.
