For sale is a great colored sugilite with some rickterite, from Wessel Mine, South Africa. Please note a couple of the pics have been taken with the specimen wet, to highlight the wonderful saturated color. The rickterite association while not uncommon is a welcome bonus, and if the buyer would wish to cut and polish this piece, would add an extra dimension to the visual impact. The is the potential for a lot of good cut material from this. This specimen weights 97gms, quite a good size, and its virtually solid sugilite, except for a couple of black manganese veins. This is old material that came out of a collecting that has not been looked at for more than 30 years. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
