Why I like Oregon Sunstone?
It’s one of the easiest materials to do the cutting and polishing on, and yet can be one of the most complex materials, optically. So, it affords a really wide range of expressive opportunities, especially for the technically savvy – and it offers that with a minimum of hardships in manifesting that expression. It offers a range of sizes and entry costs – with a range of potential returns on the investment, depending on the skills of the cutter. We can work from champagne into wonderful deep greens and reds, and bicolors and tricolors and dichroic or trichroic presentations. We can work with decorative inclusions. We can work with polysynthetic twinning as a decorative feature (“Rainbow Sunstone” TM ). Finally, we can work with any of these things in any combination with each other. Oregon Sunstone offers this range from the most affordable and simple material to some elegant and highly-complex. It truly supports every level of learning, practice, and expression – and every budget along that continuum.
