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. 

But in the grand scheme of things, that’s the least important bit about this stone. 😉


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

Sugilite Geo-Facts

  • It’s a manganese-based mineral — also containing 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 it 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 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).

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.
