These specimens of Sunstone Feldspar are cut into a small round slice that fits comfortably in the palm of the hand and has one smooth polished side and one rough unpolished side, allowing its bright orange and semi-opaque white crystals to be enjoyed from both perspectives.
Also known as Heliolite and sometimes Advensurscence Feldspar, Sunstone gets its range of orange color and metallic luster from the inclusion of Copper and often Hematite and Geolite. The thin plate-like structure of these inclusions, when cut horizontally to the top and bottom of a specimen, is what gives Sunstone its distinctive spotted appearance.
