Rare and Beautiful Sugilite Jewelry
Sugilite is a spectacular purple colored gemstone that is just awesome in Jewelry, both Silver and Gold. Sugilite Jewelry is unusual and it is rarely scene for sale
due to a limited supply of the gemstone. Sugilite is mined near Northern Cape Province of South Africa and due to unrest in the region little to no Sugilite is being taken out of the mines any longer. Durango Silver Company has a large supply of Sugilite that we secured several years ago, we cut and inlay all of our own Sugilite into beautiful one of a kind Sugilite Jewelry.
