Sunstone is the State Gem of Oregon, which is the primary source for this beautiful gemstone. Sunstone is also referred to as ‘heliolite’, derived quite literally from the Greek 'helios' and 'lithos,' which mean 'sun' and 'stone'. Sunstone is metallic in appearance and comes in red, orange or green colours. When viewed from certain angles, it exhibits a brilliant spangled appearance due to reflections from enclosures of red haematite in the form of minute scales which are hexagonal, rhombic or irregular in shape. Although principally mined in Oregon USA, Sunstones are found in many places including Finland, Canada, India, Madagascar, South Norway and Russia. Sunstone jewellery is linked to good luck, romance and abundance. This stone increases the vitality and courage of the wearer, strengthens the wearer’s abilities of self-discipline, self confidence, positive outlook and cheerfulness. Sunstone is also a semi-precious gemstone for the zodiac sign of Leo (21 Jul - 21 Aug)
