Part of a unique vein, rich in purple, blue (Richterite) and pink, with a minimum of black, which displays well dry, and spectacularly wet. We call it 'Rainbow Sugilite.'
'Sugilite Chunks' is our collection of small to large hunks of natural (uncut or colored) stone which anyone would love to have in their collection, especially as it symbolizes Spiritual Manifestation. In other words, it's meant to represent and evoke the process of bringing the wished-for, and our Spiritual Mission, into being. It comes from South Africa, was mined out in the 70's and 80's, and most of what's available on the market today is disappointingly impure and low grade. Also, most vendors portray it with poor color reproduction and wet, so it looks like it might if it were cut and polished. You can see water on our hand in the instances pieces are shown wet. We like to show you what they look like dry primarily, because that's the truest test of the stone's intrinsic quality. Sugilite is one of our favorite types of stone, and we're hoping to set a new standard in grading and presentation quality for this extraordinary variety. Feel free to contact us with interest, as much of our merchandise is off line. We can post more pieces depending on your interest. Our prices on this material are based on market research, the energy put into seeking, grading and marketing. The more a piece is, the more rare and deserving it is of its price tag. Once you familiarize yourself with our inventory, you'll understand better how we've arrived at each unique price. We may be open to Best Offers, it depends. So feel free to contact us with any questions. Length: 10.8cm; Width: 5.1cm; Depth: 3.2cm Weight: 157.9g Origin: Africa, South Africa (Northern Cape Province)
