Sunstone, Russian

Sunstone, Russian is a gemstone variety of the mineral feldspar, the same class of minerals that includes moonstone and labradorite. Sunstone is typically found as small pieces of yellow gemmy feldspar. However, this sunstone from Russia comes in massive blocks of multiple crystals packed together. Instead of yellow, it is a gorgeous bright orange. The crystals have shiller, or sparkle to them.

Please enlarge and view the photographs for more detailed views. Shown wet to simulate polish. As with all natural rock, there may be fractures or pits to seal or work around. Each slab has the approximate dimensions listed. I use the longest and widest point and the thinnest, it’s not averaged.

If you like this material you may also like chrysocolla or shattuckite.

We have worked hard with the lighting and the settings on the camera so that the colors are very accurate. Individual settings may affect color viewing on various devices and I cannot predict what your device will do, but on my computer, they’re dead on for color. I appreciate your business!
