Product Overview

Loose Genuine Natural Sunstone Gemstone!

This gemstone is only produced in a few small corners of the Oregon outback. Full of the unique copper colored schiller that creates a real display as the gem is tilted. This gem has a very minor inclusion in the pavilion, but does not take away from its beauty. A rare gem faceted in a trilliant design.  Custom faceted by Linda.

Sunstone or can be also called Heliolite, is the State Gem of Oregon, a prime source for this beautiful gem. The name Heliolite has been derived from the Greek 'helios' and 'lithos,' which mean 'sun' and 'stone'.

Sunstone is formed in molten lava and is discharged onto the surface with the help of a volcano. The lava weathers away or is broken. Fine crystals of sunstone is then released. The Oregon sunstone is found with copper in it which is the cause for the range of colors in the stone from water color to yellow and many shades of green, red and pink.

This Sunstone is a Perfect gem for a unique jewelry piece such as a ring or a pendant!
