sugilite256 (pronounced /ˈsuː.ɡɪˌlaɪt tuː ˈfɪfti sɪks/) is an 8-bit, 256-color color scheme inspired by lapis256_ & likewise named after a mineral_.
After years of use & looking at all ðese blues & greens, I wanted someþing violet & purple.

It is first & foremost a scheme for Vim & Vim-compatible text editors, & oðer þeming targets will be derived from ð Vim color scheme.

sugilite256 properties
	• Moderate contrast between background & text
	• Soft contrast between many common syntax elements
	• Lots of *violet* & *purple*
	• *Don’t* set default background & foreground colors to match ð user’s interface
	• Xterm 256-color support
	• Optimized for :ac:`OLED` (meaning, readable on black)
