The mineral was first described in 1976 by Murakami and was named in honour of the late professor Kan-ichi Sugi. It was first discovered as brownish-yello veins in an aegirine syenite from Ehemi Prefecture, Japan. Manganese is the coloring agent for its deep purple color. Sugilite mineral is translucent to opaque; the gem-quality sugilite has a lovely translucency but it is very rare.
Sugilite is a very popular gemstone with jewellery makers and buyers due to its beautiful color. Its granular structure makes it a perfect gemstone for carving and inlay work. It is also can be used for protect-style jewellery such as earrings and pendants.
