Handmade by Zuni artisan Walter Lalio. Jewelry making has long been an important part of the lives of Southwest Native peoples. During the last 50 years, Native jewelers in the Southwest—Navajos in particular—have created a contemporary aesthetic that draws on traditional materials and reflects the persistence of cultural values such as beauty, centering, and balance.Laced with Manganese, it often displays a variety of black, brown and blue lines and patches creating a unique mottled effect.It is an unusual deep purple stone from Southern Africa. Sometimes referred to as "Purple Turquoise" Sugilite is a rare gem type named for Ken-ichi Sugi, the Japanese geologist who discovered it in 1944. Metaphysically, Sugilite is said to emanate a protective energy, especially for gentle people and children who don't easily screen out the negativity of others. It is especially helpful to those who feel themselves to be gentle spirits who are shocked by the harshness of human interaction here on earth. For them Sugilite may provide a nurturing vibration which allows for the screening out of hostility, anger and fear.\n
