Sugilite was first discovered in 1944 by Japanese petrologist Ken-Ichi Sugi (1901-1948) from the Imperial University in Kyushu. He found sugilite on the Iwagi islet, in the south west of Japan. The naming of sugilite was to honor Ken-Ichi Sugi. This exquisite and unusual mineral was also found in the Wessels Mine in South Africa in 1979. The known reserves from this mine are spent. Sugilite has also been found in India, Italy, Australia and Canada.
A trio of rare sugilite cabochons adorn the back of this sweetest-ever Frog by Veronica Poblano. The lovely purple and teal colors seen in the fluorite stone are harmonious with the sugilite inlays. Bulbous eyes of turquoise are endearing along with a preciously incised smile. Veronica's carving lineage is incredible. Her father was iconic Zuni carver Leo Poblano (d). He was the nephew of Teddy Weahkee (d).
Don't miss this very collectible amphibian. About 1 1/2" long, 2" wide and 1" tall.
Four corn maidens and an Eagle are carved from one piece of fluorite by Mike Yatsayte. Together they bring a sense of feminine strength, wisdom and far-sighted vision to this 2" tall, 2" wide and 2 3/8" deep carving. Each corn maiden's face is incised and darkened with jet and they're embellished with turquoise accents. Dragonfly companions are present to bring their medicine as well. The raptor's eyes are of inlaid turquoise.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this eagle fetish will go to the Zuni Eagle Sanctuary. Please see our resources page for more information on the sanctuary.
