I forgot how great it feels to be me!
|—Sugilite, "Coach Steven"|
Sugilite is a colossal and menacing fusion with a stocky, bulky build and four arms. She has lavender skin, dark purple-black hair, five lilac eyes, and a large mouth with defined lips and sharp teeth. In close-ups of her, she appears to have purple fingernails painted to appear as gemstones themselves.
Her gemstones are located on her chest, and on the palms of the hands of her upper arms. As of Amethyst and Garnet's regenerations, Sugilite's palm gemstones have been relocated.
Pre-regeneration (debut) Edit
She had fuchsia skin and wore a lilac visor covering her lower eyes and a ripped dark purple, black and burgundy bodysuit.
Post-regeneration (previous) Edit
Her top is now split into two colors: violet and dark purple. Her leggings are also no longer ripped and now feature star-shaped patches similar to Amethyst's leggings, with the left one colored black and the right one colored dark purple. Ruby and Sapphire's gemstones are now located on her lower pair of arms with the spiral gloves.
Third regeneration Edit
Sugilite's design is not seen in full due to her shapeshifting into Steven; however, her glasses, similar to Alexandrite's, now have a point in the middle covering her fifth eye.
Sugilite cares for herself first and foremost. Though she carries out mission objectives effectively, she has problems with impulse control and does not hesitate to use her power for personal gain. She combines Garnet's headstrong, unwavering nature with Amethyst's indulgence, as well as her negative attitude towards authority. The resulting personality is a volatile mix that is highly aggressive and dangerous to everyone she encounters. This causes at least one perilous situation, wherein Sugilite, enraged that she was left behind during a mission and asked to unfuse, viciously attacks and severely injures Pearl. She seems to possess some of Ruby and Sapphire's feelings towards separating. She also appears to be cold like Sapphire can be, containing Ruby's anger issues and Amethyst's recklessness. All of Sugilite's constituent Gems contribute to her general temperament, though the similarity in nature of Amethyst and Ruby seemingly eclipse Sapphire.
Despite her destructive nature, she does seem to retain an attachment to Steven, refraining from marking him as a direct target during her rampages. Ironically, she inadvertently causes a chunk of debris to fly off at Pearl, who deflects it and hits Steven in the face. Sugilite appears to want to impress Steven with her strength, asking if he wanted "to see something cool?" when summoning Garnet's gauntlets and Amethyst's whip to form her flail.
Sugilite possesses standard Gem abilities, bubbling, shapeshifting, fusion, regeneration, agelessness, and superhuman strength/durability.
- When fused with Pearl, they form Alexandrite.
- When fused with Pearl, Albite, and Orthoclase, they form Richterite.
- Sugilite is a rare purple cyclosilicate mineral named after the Japanese petrologist Ken-ichi Sugi.
- Sugilite's chemical formula is KNa2(Fe, Mn, Al)2Li3Si12O30, where manganese, as an impurity, gives it its purple color.
- Iron and aluminum make it range in color from pinkish-purple to deep bluish-purple.
- Sugilite is not a traditional birthstone.
- Sugilite is associated with the resolution of existential problems, self-awareness, incarnation and identity; which can be the reason of her reluctance to unfuse or fuse again.
