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.

I am so pleased with the gems I purchased. I will recommend you to all my friends
I love GemSelect! Every stone that I ever purchased has been carefully packaged, and sometimes comes with origin info. The stone I just ordered is for my engagement ring, because my Fiance is making my ring! I am so amazed with the selection that this site has, and I am so impressed with the prices.
i saw a program on the science channel about varieties of fluorite - a special on John 'something' from perhaps wales and varieties of colors... and i was chatting w/ friend who sent me link to your site
