Sunstone is a plagioclase feldspar with a unique glitter from platelets of hematite. Typically it has a red, more rarely a blue or green, glitter. Star sunstones are known but rare, and most sunstone gems are faceted. Sunstone cabochons are a hard gem to find, but you'll find a wide variety available here. Sunstone deposits are found in India, Canada, Madagascar, Norway, Russia and the USA. USA sunstone from Oregon is one of the most popular and highly sought-after, and they're rarely made available to international buyers.

Many beautiful gems on the site. Love that you are actually shipped the gem that is shown in the photos. Also cool that they give a write up of each gem detailing hardness, characteristics, and best uses for mounting. Great site! Looking forward to seeing these gems in person.
