Historical Uses/Folklore: The name Sugilite comes from the geologist Ken-ichi Sugi who discovered it in 1944 in Iwagi Islet, Japan. Sugilite is an example of a mineral name pronounced wrongly more often than correctly. Named after Japanese petrologist Dr. Kenichi Sugi, whose name is pronounced with a hard "g" (as in "geese"), whereas most English speakers mispronounce it with a soft "g" (as in "gene").
Uses: Crystals are a gift of nature that have been cherished and appreciated by humankind for for millennia. There are countless ways we can incorporate crystals into our daily lives. Placed around the home, worn as jewellery or simply held in the hand they remind us of our relationship with nature and Mother Earth.
It is known that crystals, due to their atomic makeup, hold heat and focus light energy, the often used example is quartz crystals being used in watches to generate an electric charge. Beyond this, it is said that crystals and gemstones have different energies that can be used to enhance your own energetic vibrations. Each gemstone is known for its unique 'energetic' properties.
Chakra: Heart Chakra (Anahata) - Brow/Third-Eye Chakra (Ajna) - Crown Chakra (Sahasrara) aligns all.
