THE WORLD'S PRIMARY SOURCE FOR THE PRECIOUS GEMSTONE SUGILITE

                                                                                       

ABOUT

Bonas Group markets the exciting and unique gemstone Sugilite, a beautiful purple mineral denoting wealth, prosperity and healing.

Our Sugilite rough product comes from the prestigious Wessels and Nchwaning mines in South Africa, which hosts the only significant deposit of gem quality Sugilite, situated deep in the Kalahari Manganese Fields.

SUGILITE

Sugilite was first discovered in 1944 South-West Japan by Ken-ichi Sugi, and is classified as a rare mineral with only a few known sources around the world.

The colour is mostly purple with sometimes hints of pink and blue with intrusions that vary from brownish to white. Our rich purple Wessels variant is superior in volume and quality to any other source, and although various names have been given to it over time, the distinctive Sugilite became synonymous with the Wessels mine.

Sugilite has been informally mined at Wessels Mine since being found in the late 1970’s, but it was “discovered” by a visiting geologist who saw potential value of this rare mineral in jewellery and ornamentation.

SUGILITE sales are conducted by Bonas Hong Kong via an online highest bid tender.
