Oregon Sunstone is a naturally occurring gemstone created by nature – pure, radiant and simply beautiful! These stones were formed and crystallized in ancient volcanic flows where copper was one of the existing elements.
The colors range from “water clear”, “champagne”, “soft pinks”, “blood red”, “green” and “teal blue”. Some of the deeper colored stones have bands of varying colors and show different colors when viewed from different directions. Some of the pinkish orange colored stones are called “Schiller”and it is said that they contain their own “natural light source.” Sunstones measure 6.5 to 7.2 on the MOH’s hardness scale making them a very wearable gemstone.
