Sugilite 'red spot/night sky' ring Sugilite 'rectangular wafer' pendant Sugilite 'clear/purple' gel teardrop ring
Wonderful imagery in this aptly named Sugilite ring, set in Sterling Silver, with distinctive red spot. Length is top of cab to bottom of ring part (opposite side of your finger); width is left to right on the ring itself. Weight includes metal work. Ring ought to work for folks whose finger is around 6.5 in size. Essentially all Sugilite was mined out by the early 80's (or before), and comes out of old collections. Most will tell you: nothing new's coming out of the ground, though some veins have been walled off by concrete (to prevent new discoveries). Sugilite is virtually absent from most stores, shows & dealers' selections. What can be found, is often of inferior material, with lots of black, or oddly colored purple. For these reasons - because it's so rare - my starting SRP per gram is always at a premium. Pricing goes up dimensionally for gel material, jewelry, and smaller specimens). Though lesser samples can be found more cheaply, I pick and showcase a good number of the best pieces available, which represents a strong confidence in the stone's lasting value. Still, I may be open to negotiation - depending on the market, and availability - and I will at least consider serious offers (particularly from collectors and those who appreciate this stone's unique metaphysical qualities). Gel translucency - some blue Richterite action (in the darker corner) - set in Sterling Silver (no black). Length is of the cab plus setting/bale; width is left to right on the pendant itself.

Sugilite rough (46.8gr) 'red eye' Sugilite cutting rough (76.2gr) semi-gel slab Sugilite rough fish (superior carving)
Part of a very special stock of Sugilite that spans form dark purple with some solid burgundy sections, to light pink and blue (Richterite). Astonishing color burst when wet, more photos available & serious inquiries...Message me! Over half an inch thick (at the thickest) - this is a solid cutting piece - unless you like to collect slabs. The color is rich and not splotchy - the black is limited to veins - and you can see from the light & the side pictured, that if thinned, you can get some great light penetration. Perfect collector's specimen or for cutters, a treasure trove of jewelry could come out of this. The photos are accurate under bright light, of course it gets darker in obscurity. All Sugilite is pretty much old collector material, and it quite hard to find, especially in this quality. Pricing here is just under $10 a gram. Quite a find! Serious inquiries and offers considered. First image highlights the darks, which are more purple in reality, while the 2nd image is more saturated, due to bright light (that brings out the gemmy parts)...think between them for the true-to-the-eye color. This exquisite carved fish jumping out of the waves, is nestled onto a "mountainside" of black stone (the Manganese, I believe, that is ultimately of higher demand nowadays - for it's quantity and marketability - by the miners). This particular piece has exceptionally good energy, even on the black side (which usually feels "inert" vibrationally, in other occurances). Still, because so much of it is black, I'm charging only $7 a gram. Essentially all Sugilite was mined in the early 80's (or before), and comes out of old collections. Most will tell you: nothing new's coming out of the ground. It is virtually absent from most stores, shows & dealers' selections.

Though lesser samples can be found more cheaply, I pick and showcase a good number of the best pieces available, which represents a strong belief in the stone's value. Still, and am open to negotiation - depending on the market, and availability - and I will at least consider serious offers (particularly from collectors and those who appreciate this stone's unique metaphysical qualities).
Sugilite rough (104.4gr) 'perfect palm' Sugilite rough (76.2gr) gel specimen Sugilite rough (121 grams) 'plateau' medallion

It's kind of thick - but oh so dreamy - and where it's thin, you can really see the pink gel section. Color is gorgeous throughout, with all the purples, and some Richterite blue tinges in there. Perfect collector's specimen or for cutters, a treasure trove of jewelry could come out of this. All Sugilite is pretty much old collector material, and it quite hard to find, especially in this quality.
