Description

Sunstone

Sunstone is a type of feldspar with flat, plate-like inclusions of hematite, copper, and goethite. Oregon Sunstone is a unique variety of gem-quality feldspar found in south-central Oregon. Unlike sunstone from other localities, it contains only copper inclusions which produce a sparkling quality referred to as schiller. Oregon Sunstone can vary in color from pale yellow to red and even shades of green depending on the copper content. Metaphysically, sunstone is a joyful stone that promotes self-empowerment and vitality.

Sapphire

Birthstone for September

Sapphire is the variety of corundum (aluminum oxide) that is any color besides red, which is called ruby. Sapphire with minute needle-like inclusions of rutile is called star sapphire, showing a six-rayed star when cut en cabochon. Sapphire locations include Brazil, Montana, India, Madagascar, Australia, and Sri Lanka. Metaphysically, sapphire is used for bringing peace and communication.
