Sugilite is a rare silicate mineral that was first discovered in 1944 in South Africa. It is purple in color, and sometimes ranges to pink tones. Purple is the rarest color for minerals to have and Sugilite is one of the few naturally purple stones. Sugilite is found near iron sources, and was originally considered scrap by miners until one miner recognized its value due to its bright purple tone and popularized the gem.
Sugilite is the most powerful stone for combating learning disabilities. It is a great aid for anyone struggling with ADD, ADHD, and Dyslexia. Carry Sugilite or keep one in your desk to help with difficulties at school or at work.
