This is a genuine semi precious Sugilite square Pendant. A beautiful piece of hand cut square sugilite was cut and polished. It displays a light purple color that is more on the red side. We took this amazing piece and then set in a custom made scalloped bezel with gold Filled rope accent around it. The pendant is small and look great on a thin chain. The size of the pendant is approximately 10 mm x 10 mm. This stone is partially transparent and pinkish purple. Sugilite also is a rare pink to purple cyclosilicate mineral. It was first discovered in 1944 by the Japanese rock hound Ken-ichi Sugi. This extraordinary mineral is a byproduct of manganese mines. Sugilite is rare pink to purple mineral that in gem quality is currently only found in a single mine in Northern Cape Province, South Africa. The most valuable Sugilite cabochon stone is translucent. ►Metaphysical Properties This rare violet stone is often referred to as the love stone.
