Beautiful pair of faceted stones of colourless body with orange sparkling flashes.
This translucent feldspar has hematite platelet inclusions which appear orange. With a hardness of 6, good stability but poor toughness and good cleavage, sunstone is best suited for use in pendants, earrings, and brooches but care should be taken in rings and bracelets and when setting the stones themselves.
Hardness – resistance to scratching and wear
Stability – resistance to alteration by light, heat or chemicals
Toughness – resistance to fracture, cleavage or cracking
Please note you will receive the stones in the photograph
