My New Favorite Gemstone . . .


The All Natural, All-American Gemstone




Oregon Sunstone!

In the rugged high desert of south central Oregon, embedded in ancient volcanic lava under the sage brush and grass . . .




. . . lies Oregon Sunstone.


This is really, really unusual material. There's nothing like it available anywhere else in the world, and I can't get enough of the unique metallic glitter that comes from the patterns of copper inside of this gem. And don't get me started on how transparent it is!

Peachy- pinks, pale with a lot of schiller, sunstone has a beautiful soft ethereal look to it.
It's gorgeous, it glows.

Sunstone comes in a range of colors: clear, a very pale yellow, pinks, peaches, spinel red, green, and the most rare, blue green.

Some stones are bicolored or tricolored. Sunstone is also a color change stone and is different colors under different lights, and can change colors with different angles.


A lot of jewelry lovers haven't heard about this amazing gem, but a savvy designer recognizes a good thing when she/he sees it.

Personally, I want everybody to know about Oregon sunstone . . .
I'm on a mission!
