Sunstone is a plagioclase feldspar gemstone with a glistening appearance known as aventurescence when viewed from certain angles. As a result, it's also known as'adventurous feldspar.' The deposits of these gemstones can be found in a variety of locations around the world, with India, Madagascar, Russia, Norway, Canada, and the United States being the most common.
Sunstone has a name that immediately conjures up images of the stone's description! It's usually orange to reddish in color, with a gleaming sheen that instantly conjures up images of the sun. Due to minute scales of red copper, hematite, pyrite, or goethite inclusions, it is commonly opaque to translucent, rarely transparent in diaphaneity, and produces bright metallic flashes. It can be colorless at times, but it also comes in a variety of colors, including yellow, brown, green, and blue.
