Sugilite was first described in 1944 by the¬†Japanese¬†petrologist¬†Ken-ichi Sugi (1901‚Äď1948) for an occurrence on Iwagi Islet,¬†Japan, where it is found in an¬†aegirine¬†syenite¬†intrusive¬†stock.

Sugilite 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".

The mineral is also referred to as lavulite, luvulite, and royal azel by gem and mineral collectors.

 

Color may vary in images and videos due to different lightings and angles.
