Sugilite is a rare stone, found in only a few places in Australia, India, Italy, Japan, Wales and South Africa. Most of what has been found in the world is not gem quality however. Gem quality comes almost exclusively from Japan and South Africa with the vast majority coming from South Africa. The gem quality stone found in Japan is simply too deep to be mined in a cost effective way.
Sugilite comes in many colors. A pale, almost clear pink, all shades of purple, yellows, browns and black. From a metaphysical standpoint all colors are sought after. From a jewelry standpoint, the deep purples are the most highly favored (and expensive) stones with the exception of an extreme rare completely translucent form known and Gel Sugilite.
Sugilite has been called Purple Turquoise because in their raw from, the two gemstones look very much alike, other than color. However the two stones are completely different in their mineral content and are considered two different species of stone.
Known as one of the more important stones dealing with love in its many forms, you can always be sure if your working deals with matters of love, Sugilite is a stone you can use. Our heart and the love it can hold and share with others, is our connection to Spirit and the love that comes from Spirit.

This includes problems between any two family members obviously but would also include cases where the problems are in the best interest of a larger group of people. Any type of government or business meeting where decisions are being made on what is best for everyone, would do well the allow Sugilites energies to keep calm heads and open hearts.
