Sugilite inspires spiritual awareness and is an exceptional crystal for awakening the crown chakra and drawing unconditional love in to balance and align all the chakras with that energy. Sugilite helps one search for the truth and answers to questions like ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What is my purpose here?’.
The manganese in Sugilite helps relieve pain and helps ease headaches and discomfort. It also helps to bring the nerves and brain into alignment, calming the senses, lifting despair and channeling healing energy into the body, especially for cancer patients.
Sugilite is named after the Japanese geologist Ken-ichi Sugi, who discovered it in 1944. Known in South Africa long before that, it became popular in the 1980s as Luvulite when its vibration was discovered to resonate with the ‘Age of Aquarius’. As it appeared at the end of a world war, Sugilite was believed to show its availability to those with a peaceful mind and heart.
