DESCRIPTION

Sunstone is what is called in the trade a phenomenal gemstone due to its striking glittering appearance, known as aventurescence. This natural phenomena is usually caused by either Haematite or Goethite inclusions. Sunstone from Oregon gets it's aventurescence from Copper inclusions.

Sunstone has been set in jewellery for thousands of years and is steeped in history and folklore. The Vikings were said to have used the gem as a navigational aid, whilst early American settlers ground the gem and used it in medicine.
