Oregon sunstone presents a beautiful opportunity to offer an amazing American gemstone. I love the colors, pleochroism and especially the copper schiller inclusions. I often highlight these adventurescent inclusions in my work. Oregon sunstone cuts and polishes very well and provides a wonderful avenue of artistic design as each crystal has something different to offer the imagination.
