An Oregon Sunstone from Jim Allen, Sunstone Mine Owner of
who recently sent Matt at huge Sunstone that cut a large 13.67ct. stone. This stone measures 16.44mm round.
The stone is cut in a "Split Mains Brilliant" that makes this gemstone come alive!
A Sunstone is only found in Oregon, USA. The colors range from clear, straw, yellow, golden, green, pink, blue, and red, bi-colors and tri-colors.
