stones: sugilite

Sugilite has been known as the “Stone of Inner Truth”. It is called this because it keeps one securely on their soul’s chosen path without interference or persuasion from outside influences. Sugilite is wonderful for children, especially those with learning difficulties, as it helps them express themselves when they have difficulty doing so. It helps one have the ability to meet emotional challenges while remaining true to one’s convictions. This is a very rare stone found in only 2 locales around the world. One mine is found in Japan and the other is found in South Africa. It is also referred to as Luvulite and Royal Azel. Sugilite, has its first recorded discovery in Japan toward the end of World War II. This stone was named after Dr. Kenichi Sugi. The stone “name” is pronounced “soo-ga-lite” or “soo-gi-lite”. It can range from light lavender to lavender so deep it almost appears black. The best lavender purple coloring is used in jewelry. Since Sugilite is rare, little is found in tumbled form. Even though discovered in Japan around 1944, this stone was virtually unheard of until the 1980’s, when the New Age market discovered that its vibration resonated with the “Age of Aquarius”. Since it was discovered near the end of World War II it has often been thought of as a stone that will show its availability only to those who are of a peaceful mind and heart. It also aids the healing of those suffering from pain and sorrow. The stone was discovered in 1944. Shortly after its appearance, Japan was devastated by the bombings that took place August of 1945. This was no coincidence as it appeared when needed. This stone’s vibration was helping to heal those physically and emotionally injured, even without their awareness.

One would think that this was strictly a seventh chakra stone as it is lavender purple but it actually resonates with the sixth chakra or brow chakra as well. This is, however, one of those stones that can overlap two chakras as it can help one to discover their guides through meditation which is both sixth and seventh chakra functions. It overlaps in the sixth and seventh chakras as it also helps one in channeling those that have passed, which in turn releases the pain involved in the loss of that person. This stone has a harmonizing effect on everything near it. It helps groups work together in agreement rather than be at odds. This harmonizing effect also helps with disorders originating in the sixth chakra. It eases worry and enhances mental rest. It assists those suffering from epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, and other motor functions that have been compromised. Sugilite balances the nervous system. It also lessens pain associated with nervous system disorders. It is used to dissolve tensions, alleviate paranoia, and dispel fears. Good stone for those faced with PTSD, Schizophrenia, and any other mental disruptions of the mind-body-spirit connection.

The best way to benefit from the effects of Sugilite is to carry or wear it regularly. Meditating with Sugilite on a daily basis is best for those suffering from chronic pain or for those wanting to discover their life’s path. Sugilite is said to draw out pain. This is a great stone for expressing one’s eccentricities! And don’t we all have a few of those?! Enjoy Sugilite for a healthier and happier you!
