~ Protection in negative environment ~
Sugilite is a deep purple gemstone from South Africa. Its hardness ranges from 6 to 7. It is found thousands of feet below the surface of the earth, in manganese mines. It is often polished and used in jewelry, as well as in carvings and art pieces.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say that Sugilite stimulates the 'third eye', the energy center in the center of the forehead, for enhanced inner vision. It is also said to protect one from negativity in one's environment and to assist one's efforts to heal oneself or others.
