Sugilite: the Stone of Spiritual Protection

Hibiscus Moon Crystals, Videos 19 Comments


Sugilite: it’s a very popular stone on the scene right now,  so that’s what we’re gonna to talk about here today. ♥

First off,  just some geology pronunciation stuffs: I know most of you in our community are perhaps more used to this stone being more commonly pronounced as ‘soo-jeh-lyt’.

This is a mineral that’s actually named after the geologist who discovered it back in 1944, Dr. Sugi; hence the name, “Sugilite”.

But a lot of people see how it’s spelled and they mispronounced it as ‘soo-jeh-lyt’.

It’s actually pronounced, “soo-ghee-lyt”, with a hard-G. 

OK, ’nuff about that. 😉


Here’s a quick recap of the info included in the above video…

Sugilite Geo-Facts

  • It’s a manganese-based mineral — also contains lots of other elements as well
  • most often comes from the manganese mines in South Africa
  • its Mohs Hardness is between 6 and 6.5 so it’s relatively hard
  • usually grows in masses; a stone mass.  Very, very, rarely does it form a crystal, but when it does they call a “sugilite gel” – where it’s transparent, those are going to be much more expensive. 😉 
  • can range from a pale lilac color all the way down to a deep purple and even bordering on magenta from the manganese content in it


Sugilite Metaphysical Info

  • aligns with your Third Eye and Crown Chakras 
  • invites in Archangel Michael; your angel of protection as I mentioned in a recent video blog post
  • a stone of spiritual and powerful psychic protection

Sugilite invites in the violet flame energy of protection; to help protect you from any sort of spiritual or psychic attack or even energetic cords from getting in or latching onto your EMF; your Electromagnetic Field.

Sugilite helps to purify your aura and your EMF (one and the same).

***If you’re interested in learning more about techniques and other specific crystals for cord-cutting check out my blog post over here. 

Sugilite is our go-to stone for spiritual protection, so if  you’re having dreams where you feel like there’s a lot going on and maybe some spiritual or psychic attack happening or even just sensing that intuitively, in general (it doesn’t have to be in a dream)… this is your stone to work with for that.

It’s also a stone that helps to enhance your dreams. Therefore, if you’d like to have more vibrant dreams or better dream-recall then this is the stone for you.

So, I’d love to hear about your experiences with this gorgeous stone so please share in the comments below.

Do you have Sugilite in your collection?  A tumbled stone or jewelry piece?  How have you worked with this and how have you found Sugilite supports you in Crystal Healing?

Crystal Blessings!

  1. I have some sugilite but did not realize the protective properties. I am going to get it out and start working with it. Thanks for the information. Enjoy your time away!

  2. LOVE IT!!!! I absolutely LOVE Sugilite! It’s one of my most favorite stones. I have it sitting right by my side in my living room when I come home from work every day! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I was not aware that it had such powerful protection qualities! I will have to get some! Thanks for all your sharing and have a great “detox” time until 2018! 🙂

  4. I have a piece of very deep purple tumbled Sugilite. It is just the perfect size to have wire wrapped and made into a pendant. I’m asking my daughter to do that for me now that I know it has protection properties. The card that came with my piece says that it is good for mental and emotional stresses that create illnesses of the physical body. It does not mention protection. I definitely need protection right now. I just got out my little tumbled gem and will be working with it. Love and Light 💗💫

  5. Hi
    Is it also good for defence from some paranormal attacks like black magic or something like that i mean for freeing body mind and soul from it?

  6. Great video as always thankyou so much for sharing your knowledge freely❤. I am an empath so I will be looking for a nice piece of this crystal. I hope you have a blessed and refreshing sabbatical and holidays!!!! Namaste 💖💖💖💖

  7. Sugilite is the stone that really started my avid interest in minerals and crystals, in 2015. I had picked up a few little stones here and there before this over the years, but then I got just a couple of small tumbled sugilite stones. I had heard that they were good for dreams, and thought, well… couldn’t hurt. Putting them under my pillow, I had the most spectacular dreams for the next 3 nights – way beyond any dreams I’d had in probably a couple of decades. I was blown away, and wouldn’t believe it if I hadn’t experienced it. I now have several more small polished or semi-polished pieces. It seems that prices have shot up since just two years ago. And I’ve been diving into the rest of the mineral kingdom, exploring *lots* of different stones and crystals.

  8. One of my friends suggested me to use crystals for a better life. According to her, crystals bring positive energy into our life. I gave a thought to it and purchased one. It worked for us as my family was going through a financial trouble. Now, I purchase crystals whenever I want and whichever I like. Recently, I purchased Orgone disc from and I am planning to buy a crystal to combat stress and I really like your purple crystal. I will certainly buy Sugilite for psychic protection.
