Sunstone Crystals


Sunstone, part of the feldspar mineral group, is renowned for its radiant colors and shimmering optical effect. Its popularity extends around the globe - it's a recognized gem in areas as diverse as North America, Norway, and India. The sparkling sheen of Sunstone results from inclusions of hematite or goethite; these metallic-looking specks create an eye-catching shimmer when moved. Colorwise, the stone can appear yellow or orange to dark red; some even feature multiple hues present within one stone. Particularly stunning examples include those with a colorless body and a bright crimson "flash" - known as "Schiller".

Sunstone is prized for its leadership-inspiring qualities, being believed to empower the wearer with self-confidence and courage. It is thought to aid in emotional balance and reduce stress, and bring joy and luck as well. Sunstone's stunning optics also make it an eye-catching pick for jewelry, particularly in pendants or earrings; additionally, crystal healers often use sunstone to help balance the chakras and promote physical healing.

Sunstone is a durable mineral and is relatively easy to care for, making it a great choice for everyday wear. It is a soft mineral, with a Mohs hardness of 6-6.5, so it should be protected from scratches and impacts. Clean the Sunstone with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth, and store it in a soft cloth or jewelry pouch to protect it from scratches and damage.

Sunstone is a beautiful and unique crystal that is prized for its vibrant colors and sparkling optical effects. Whether you're drawn to its beauty or its spiritual properties, Sunstone is a wonderful crystal to add to your collection or to wear as jewelry.
