This is a fine specimen of sugilite gem rough that boasts a gorgeous combination of dark violet and lilac purple colors in thick veins. There have been no recent discoveries of 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.
