The purple color of this high grade sugilite gem rough is very dramatic. This is an excellent hand-sized specimen of this rare gemstone, or it can be cut and polished into fine cabachons for jewelry. New gem grade material has not been mined from this classic locality in over 20 years (and there's no other locality for gem sugilite in the world).
