One of A Kind Hand Carved in a Spiral Seashell Shape Copper Schiller Oregon Sunstone Ring in Sterling Silver Sz 7 Nature Inspired Jewelry Stones First, Metal Second This carved crystal is Sunstone from Oregon, a feldspar with copper inclusions and finds it self at home in the same mineral family (plagoclase feldspar) as the Rainbow Moonstone and Labradorite and is ONLY found in Oregon! This is genuine Oregon Sunstone, our state gemstone, mined at the Ponderosa mine, north of Burns, Oregon. It was carved into a seashell by the mine owner. Back in the long long ago, you know? the before times when diamonds were rare, oregon sunstones were mined by Tiffany & Co as a diamond alternative. Sunstones are super sparkly and have what's called a "high refractive index", making them sparkle brilliantly like a diamond! Oregon sunstones have a fantastic history, unlike many crystals which form at low temperatures, close to the surface, sunstones were formed deep in the belly of the earth in a basalt flow (think Hawaii) and erupted fully formed, flowing across the floor of Rabbit Basin and other areas, deep in the Oregon desert. Dazzling sparkles will draw you into the stone and hold you there, pondering the marvel of the tiny metallic copper platelets dancing before you. Each sunstone is handpicked and unique. Our sunstones have gone through a sunstone cage match where only the strongest and most durable crystals end up in our raw sunstone rings.
