Huge brilliant cut round Oregon Suntone, bi-color gold and copper-red! A beautiful 1.74ct, 8mm diameter gem from the Dust Devil mine. The cut and polish is superb, second to none!

Oregon sunstone is an all-American, all-natural gemstone. There is no need to enhance it's beauty with chemicals, irridiation, heat, oiling, etc. Created by nature Oregon Sunstone is pure, radiant, and simply beautiful.

Formed and crystallized in ancient volcanic flows, Oregon sunstone is unique among gem feldspars due to the millions of copper platelets (schiller phenomenon) found in each stone. Schiller is responsible for the 'inner light' effect apparent in Oregon Sunstone.

Sunstones are also encountered in India, Russia, Finland and Norway, but only in Oregon is the stone found of gemstone quality. In 1992, Tiffany & Co. and H. Stern added the Oregon gem to their lines,calling it American Sunstone.

At 6.5 to 7.2 on the Moh’s hardness scale, Sunstone competes favorably with Tanzanite, Topaz, Amethyst, Emerald, and other well-known gems, and with prices ranging from $20.00 per carat to as much as $2500.00 per carat, based on color, cut, clarity, and carat weight; there is an Oregon sunstone available for everyone.
