Sunstones, OR

The sunstones from Oregon are a gem grade feldspar and some will have an aventurescence effect also called schiller with a beautiful pink color caused by flat copper platelets. When making a cabochon, you'll want to have the base of the cabochon parallel to this plane of bright color. Since the platelets are flat, keep the top of the cabochon fairly flat also. The sunstones are a pale yellow color and fairly small, but hopefully some will be large enough to facet, cab, or tumble. The sunstones have a hardness of 6.7 to 7.2 so will take a beautiful polish. One order will have one ounce of Oregon sunstones. Stock #650
