This is an excellent specimen of sugilite gem rough that boasts a gorgeous, vivid purple color in several layers alternating with riebeckite. There have been no recent discoveries of top grade sugilite for many years, and it has become increasingly difficult to find good material. The piece has had mineral oil applied to show off the color.
