Sugilite is highly prized for its saturated purple color, and has been used for decades for healing  and for spiritual purposes.  This is a very fine specimen of this rare mineral in a super rich, dark purple.  No new material has been found since the 1990s, so pieces with good color like this one are very scarce.
