Embrace the Radiance of Sunstone! It has a rich history and beauty

Today, I am thrilled to show our newest sunstone collection, which showcases the mesmerizing beauty and radiant energy of sunstone.


Sunstone, in its raw form, is a feldspar mineral characterized by its unique shimmering effect known as aventurescence. It typically appears as a translucent stone with a range of colors, including shades of orange, peach, red, and gold, often interspersed with glittering flecks or "schiller" caused by mineral inclusions. The sunstone's enchanting play of light is a result of tiny copper platelets or hematite inclusions within the stone.


When expertly cut and polished, sunstone transforms into a captivating gemstone that exhibits a remarkable interplay of colors and light. The polished surface reveals the stone's natural beauty, enhancing its vibrant hues and shimmering effects. Jewelry crafted from polished sunstone exudes an irresistible radiance, capturing attention with its warm and inviting
