History & Origin:

Sunstone is a variety of feldspar, (usually containing Hematite, Copper or Goethite) which is often found in warm shades of orange, gold & red. The bright metallic flashes are caused when light interacts with tiny plate-like mineral inclusions within the stone. This produces a flash of light in the eye of the observer when viewed at the proper angle, which is known as aventurescence. While the most famous Sunstone deposits are found in Oregon, US, this crystal can also be discovered in locations such as Australia, Canada, China, Congo, Ethiopia, India, Mexico, Norway, Russia, Sri Lanka & Tanzania. Myths & legends have long told stories of Sunstone & its abilities to light the way ahead. Connected to the Egyptian God Ra & Greek God Helios, this crystal is believed to hold the power of the Sun within.
