Sugilite Cabochon from South Africa is a natural rare gemstone, a cyclosilicate. It has traces of manganese, mixed quartz crystal and black matrix. Colors are a range of plum, purple, lilac, bluish purple, and magenta in a black matrix. This attractive opaque stone has interesting veins, layers and patterns that make it more desirable.
Size: 46mm x 30mm 5mm thick
I enjoy hand cutting and polishing interesting gemstones. I try to find the most attractive patterns, veins or layers the stone has to offer.
