A gem that appears to glow from within boasts a vast array of colors and is completely natural without treatment seems impossible. And yet, that is exactly what the Oregon Sunstone is. Vibrant shades of pinks, peaches, oranges, yellows, reds, greens, and blue greens delight and amaze us with their uniqueness. Occasionally, we are treated to a spectrum of several of these colors all in the same stone! Want more? Some are even color changing, producing different colors under different lights and at different angles.
Tiny platelets of copper produce a shimmer effect inside the stone called the Schiller phenomenon. Though Sunstone is found in other areas around the world, Schiller Sunstone is only found in Oregon. MK Designs loves Oregon Sunstone so much that, at times, the jewelry piece we create never reaches the website or store!
