A Sunstone tumbled stone Selected specially for you upon purchasing on line.

The name Sunstone comes from its warm colour and reflected light, reminiscent of the sun. 

Sunstone, we all feel better with a bit of sunshine, assisting  to transform anger into energy, judgment into joy, warming and stimulating the emotional body.

Sunstone is also sometimes known as Aventurine Feldspar.

Size approximately     2  cm, Weight 4g to 9g

Sunstone is a type of Oligoclase Feldspar exhibiting in certain directions a brilliant spangled appearance, due to reflections from inclusions of Copper (Oregon Sunstone) or red hematite.  Sunstone has a triclinic crystal system and usually occurs as compact aggregates. The colour is orange to red-brown, with sparkling inclusions. There are nearly 20 minerals in the Feldspar group which make up the greatest percentage of minerals found in the Earth's crust.

Sunstone deposits are known in India, Canada, Norway, Russia and the USA.

Here at London Fossils Crystals I sell a wide range of Tumble Stones  

Tumble stones are so called because a number of stones of similar sizes are placed in a barrel which is rotated (tumbled) at a speed and after a time between 3 - 5 weeks the stones are polished from rough to smooth. 
(The Tumble stones we sell, have not been tumbled by ourselves)
