Gemmology Facts: 

Sunstone is a variety of Feldspar Mineral that is translucent to transparent and emits bright metallic flashes when light interacts with tiny plate-like mineral inclusions within the stone. These mineral inclusions are usually oriented in the same direction, and light entering the stone interacts with them at the same angle. This causes a flash of light in the observer’s eye when viewed from the correct angle. Sunstone’s optical phenomena cause a distinct and lively glitter called Aventurescence. The inclusions in Sunstone are usually tiny plates of Copper, Hematite, or Goethite.

Our artisan carvers are extremely well trained and have mastered cutting Gemstone to optimise their optical phenomena. If the Stone is cut at a random orientation, the Aventurescence will be less than optimal. They study the Gem and map out shapes to ensure the best Aventurescence is captured while limiting waste.

Sunstone has a Mohs Hardness of 6.

Crystal Healing Properties:

The only way to describe this stone is Happy, Happy, Happy. A Sunstone will not rest until you are vibrating at the same frequency they do, so fill your boots with this joyous Gem!

For those of us, who feel a bit sad in the winter, your Sunstone is here to ensure you keep a piece of an endless summer close by, carrying the radiance of the sun giving us an extra dose of mental Vitamin D.

Sunstone carries the energy of Ra, the sun god, whose energy brings all potential life from within the Earth, with the radiance of the sun and the fire of the solar beams. It is a Leadership Stone, representing personal power, freedom, and expanded consciousness. It brings openness, benevolence and warmth, strength, mental clarity, and the willingness and ability to bestow blessings on others, truly reflecting the qualities of Light.

Sunstone, with its sun and light powers, clears and cleanses all chakras, restoring joy and nurturing the spirit. It energises the Base and Sacral Chakras in particular, stimulating leadership and will, creativity, and sexuality.

Sunstone’s red and brown tones stimulate the Base, or Root Chakra, which is located at the base of the spine and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. Sunstone’s gold and orange tones correspond to the Sacral Chakra, or Second Chakra, which is located at the front of the pelvis below the naval and above the pubic bone. It regulates the flow of energy and serves as the body’s centre of gravity. Sunstone’s connection to your Sacral Chakra, the place that houses your inner unique chi (everything that makes you your amazing self!). Sunstone is one of those Crystals that is brimming with endless energy and ever-ready to pick you up into positive power. Just like the warming kiss of the sun on your face, having this Stone close by instantly rejuvenates the spirit.
