Did you know there is more than one variety of sunstone?

Posted on



This beautiful little stone is Oregan sunstone - another member of the feldspar family. 

This variety is found in Oregon and commonly has copper inclusions which can be seen with a 10x loupe – not to be confused with sunstone which has tiny hematite or goethite inclusions.
