Wow - shocking new material here. Prized Sugilite specimens were first those with small crystals, then later came the specimens with fibrous crystals. And now this style, the first I've ever seen like it. This is a solid seam of fibrous, chatoyant Sugilite, the best (though not the biggest) out of only 5 pieces available. A rare and unusual specimen, but could you imagine cat's-eye Sugilite cabachons? Weighs 55.6 grams.
