Is it possible to find sugilite with gold flecks in it?

0 votes
Wondering if sugilite exists in nature with gold flecks or matrix?  And if so, how might I research to find such a stone?

Many thanks! Irene

Sugilite doesn't typically occur in gold-bearing regions or environments. Perhaps it could pyrite or another inclusion that has a sheen. Can you please post some pictures?
