The name ‘Sugilite’ is derived from the discoverer, Ken-ichi Sugi, a petrologist at Kyushu University.
In most cases, it is opaque and has a dark purple to maroon color.

Following are the Benefits of Sugilite:
- Evolution of consciousness,
- awakening to higher dimensions,
- inner wisdom and truth,
- contact with universal truth,

Healing effects of Sugilite:
Sugilite says that by putting a light shield around the person holding this stone, it protects from the negative influences coming from the surroundings, removes negative attachments from the aura, and enhances spiritual energy on the ground. .. Especially those who are mentally awake and their calm and pure souls tend to be vulnerable to the vibrations of the world, so sugilite will be a good guardian.
Originally, purple stone is said to be noble and has a high healing effect, but sugilite is said to have a strong healing power so that it does not need to be purified. Physically, it is said to be good for lymphatic system symptoms, and mentally, it is said to release the blockage caused by negative vibrations such as pressure and anger.
It seems that sugilite promotes such a purifying effect because it has the fundamental effect of deepening the understanding of “why?” As mentioned above.
Symptoms appear in the body at the final stage, and before that, it is said that the etheric body surrounding the body causes dissonance and energy clogging that predispose to illness.
The cause of such discord and clogging is the mental and emotional factors such as the person’s thoughts, anger and sadness, stress and oppression, as well as karmic factors.
However, it is extremely difficult for us humans to identify such factors.
Sugilite is said to lead to the cause of such incongruity and clogging in the consciousness of the owner, that is, the answer of “why?” By synchronizing with the chakra between the eyebrows.
When you understand not only the reason why it happened, but also what you should learn from this experience (illness or discord), it means that the experience ends at the end of class time.
In the field of stone healing, there are reports that it promotes cell regeneration to strengthen the function of the heart and is used for headaches.
However, these effects and benefits have not been proven in modern medicine.
Magical effects of Sugilite:
The central suggestion as a gemstone is “evolving consciousness”.
In the 20th century, humankind experienced two great world wars and came to possess the power to destroy the earth. But at the same time, I was reminded of the limits of what I could gain and the amount of what I would lose.
This indicates that the direction of humankind has reached a turning point.
It means that the method of building a society by force and materialism over the past millennia is in a transitional period in which it shifts to a completely different way of thinking.
All stones will appear on earth at the time they are needed.
The appearance of sugilite on the ground at the end of the 20th century can be said to be a symbol of new values.
The deep dark purple sugilite is said to open the “third eye” that exists between the eyebrows, enhance the spirituality that is the essence of human beings, and promote synchronization with cosmic consciousness. It brings about a paradigm shift from the conventional values that have considered only the material world on earth as a reality.
Until now, human beings have assumed that they can exist only for a limited period of life and death, are swayed by emotions such as emotions, are urged by conflict and desire, are afraid of illness and death, and are material. I was fascinated by my existence, and I kept screaming, “Why should I have such an encounter?”
The answer to that “why?” Is now being presented in various situations.
The recent spiritual boom is part of that answer, and the advent of sugilite is one of the answers.
Sugilite reminds us that not only the material world is real, but the higher world including the material world is expanding, and the existence of human beings is actually larger than we can see.
It teaches us to understand “why the world is like this and why I am here” and, by extension, to intentionally control our consciousness and spirit.
It is for this reason that sugilite is said to open the “third eye” that exists between the eyebrows, enhance spirituality, and promote the evolution to cosmic consciousness.
In the first place, purple is a mixture of the extreme colors of blue and red. It is yin and yang, above and below, heaven and earth, inside and outside.
The purple color of sugilite symbolizes the mixture of heaven and earth. It means understanding higher-order waves at the physical level of the earth and blending them into our daily lives.
In other words, spiritual consciousness is not in heaven, but in the everyday life you live in.
This is exactly the reason why sugilite appeared in this era.
Sugilite is said to be hand-held during meditation and prayer, or worn as an accessory to facilitate higher-level understanding and to help creatively use such vibrations in real life. ..
It is often pointed out that amethyst should be used together as a stone to complement the power of sugilite. Other compatible stones include moldavite, lapis lazuli, diamonds and pure gold.
How to Cleanse Sugilite:
It is said that sugilite does not need to be purified, but it is necessary to purify it when it is first obtained or when the stone feels tired.
Since it is a noble stone, we recommend that you combine multiple tools such as crystal, white sage, and tuner to purify it.
Sugilite corresponds to which chakra:
Between the eyebrows and the top of the head

Discovery of Sugilite:
Many power stones have been used as healing and amulets since ancient times, but sugilite is a completely new face.
It was first discovered in 1944 in Japan.
Originally, Ken-ichi Sugi, a petrologist at Kyushu University, investigated aegirine syenite on Iwagi Island in the Seto Inland Sea in Ehime Prefecture, and found that it contained a rare mineral with a Uguisu color. I noticed and presented it to an academic conference. At that time, it could not be determined that it was a new type of mineral due to lack of analysis, so it seems that it was tentatively called Iwakilite for the time being.
After that, Mr. Nobuhide Murakami of Yamaguchi University, who took over the research, clarified the chemical composition and named it “Sugilite” in the name of his teacher. In 1977, it was internationally recognized as a new mineral.
The amount of sugilite found on Iwagi Island was very small, but after that, a large amount of purple rock was found in the manganese deposit in South Africa, and as a result of investigating the chemical composition, it was found to be a mineral registered internationally as sugilite. .. The size and color of the sugilite are completely different from those of Iwagi Island, but it was found that the South African sugilite has such a color because it contains manganese.
Sugilite from South Africa first became popular in the United States.
Riding on the New Age boom from the cage, it attracted attention as “a stone that appeared to evolve human consciousness at the arrival of the Age of Aquarius.”
After that, even in Japan, it became popular as a spiritual natural stone along with moldavite. Most of the sugilite currently in circulation around the world is from South Africa.

In addition, some of them have a blue to bluish black color, which is said to be due to the inclusion of Richter light (Licta light).
