ITEM DESCRIPTION Featured are genuine Oregon Sunstone. Oregon sunstone is a feldspar crystal formed in molten lava and then discharged onto the surface of the earth by a volcano. As the lava weathers away or is broken up the crystals are released. Oregon is the only place in the world where gem grade Sunstones are found containing copper. Varying amounts of copper cause the stones to range in color from water clear to yellow, as well as many shades of green, red and pink. Some stones contain from two to four of these colors. Some rare stones will even change colors in different light as alexandrite does, and some are different colors when viewed from different directions. The majority of Oregon Sunstones are translucent. The Oregon Sunstones found in these parcels are all of the golden yellow/champagne color. Some gems are completely clean, while others show their natural inclusions.
