Appox. 3.9 cm Natural Sugilite Crystal Carved Skull
Sugilite gets its colors from the manganese traces in the stone. There are sugilite stones that are the same shades of amethyst purple. A vein of this runs through this skull.
There are also sugilite stones that are light brown yellow, reddish violet, pale lilac pink, magenta, dark rose red, or lavender.
The name sugilite comes from the name of the geologist who discovered it in 1944 in Iwagi Islet, Japan. His name was Ken-ichi Sugi.
Sugilite has a large deposit in South Africa, and that’s where it’s usually mined. It can also be found in Japan and Canada.
