History: Sugilite (KNa2 [Fe2Mn2Al] 2 Li3Si12O30) is also called “Lavulite/Royal Azele” It can be solid, violet pink to purple. Found only in the first half of the 20th century, first in Japan then in South Africa. Sugilite was first described in 1944 by the Japanese petrologist Ken-ichi Sugi (1901–1948) for an occurrence on Iwagi Islet, Japan, where it is found in an aegirine syenite intrusive stock. It is found in a similar environment at Mont Saint-Hilaire, Quebec, Canada. In the Wessels mine in Northern Cape Province of South Africa, sugilite is mined from a strata-bound manganese deposit. It is also reported from Liguria and Tuscany, Italy; New South Wales, Australia and Madhya Pradesh, India. The mineral is commonly pronounced with a soft “g”, as in “ginger”. However, as with most minerals, its pronunciation is intended to be the same as the person it is named after; in this case, the Japanese name Sugi has a hard “g”, as in “geese”.
