This pendant features a cabochon of Tanzanian star sunstone with 8 rays. The stone measures 0.72 x 0.48 inches (18.3 x 12.3 mm) and weighs in at 9.6 carats. It is set in solid 14k white gold wire.

Sunstone is a variety of gem feldspar, the family that also includes moonstone--it is defined by having reflective inclusions that give it both sheen and color. There are several varieties, but Tanzania produces a particularly fine variety sometimes called confetti or illusion sunstone. This variety actually has a moonstone base with a silvery adularescence, and on top of that inclusions of hematite add a golden sheen. When these mix they can produce a bright star with either four or eight rays.

This stone is a very fine example. It has a solid black background with a bright golden star, with four strong rays and four thin rays making a rare 8-ray star. It is the first one I have ever seen, and it is spectacular!
