Head Over Heels for Oregon Sunstone

Sunstone is a stone of leadership, personal power, freedom, and expanded consciousness. Reflecting the qualities of light, it brings openness, benevolence, warmth, strength, and mental clarity.

In our most recent collection, we incorporated Oregon Sunstones, and have since become a little obsessed. Few people are familiar with Oregon Sunstone, which is far more rare and valuable than sunstones mined elsewhere. Although the color can range from water clear, to soft pinks, deep reds, yellows and even blue and green, we are using the soft pink, peach gems with lots of schiller. Schiller refers to the aventurescence, or optical effect of metallic glitter which arises from miniscule flecks of rhombic and hexagonal pieces of copper embedded in the stone. It is the copper element that makes Oregon Sunstones unique. The copper flecks shimmer and glow as they catch the light.
