Oregon Sunstone is a "Natural, All-American" gem,
coming from the mines in the state of Oregon and receiving no treatment. Part of the Feldspar group, Oregon Sunstone has a lively glitter that is caused by the flat, reflective copper inclusions contained within the gemstone. This sparkly luster is called aventurescence and is often referred to as "Schiller". Oregon Sunstone is expensive to mine, with a ton of rock typically only yielding about a pound of Sunstone and a fraction of that being gem quality. Oregon Sunstone is transparent, with the inclusions responsible for creating a reddish to golden and orange body color. Clean with warm, soapy water. Avoid use of ultrasonic and steam cleaner.
