Sunstone is an interesting feldspar gemstone with a glittery appearance. Sunstone occurs in a range of colors that begins with colorless and ranges through yellow, orange, and red. The color is determined, in part, by the abundance and size of the copper platelets within the stone. The sparkly metallic glitter in this feldspar is called aventurescence, which is caused by flat, reflective inclusions (sometimes called “schiller”). Deposits of sunstone have been found in India, Canada, South Norway and Russia. Sunstone has also been discovered in the United States, with deposits found in Oregon, where it is the official state gemstone.

Sunstone helps to restore “sweetness” back into your life as it nurtures and supports your real self, encouraging one to step up and shine out. It is an alchemical stone that connects one to the regenerative power of the sun.
