Here is a fantastic Sunstone carving! Oregon Sunstone is one of the most beautiful gems for North America, and is one of the few elite gemstones that are naturally red color. What is rarer than the excellent red color is blue. Few of the Oregon Sunstones come in a distinct blue color, and most times the blue is joined by red and makes for dark stones when the colors are mixed. This material is strongly dichroic, displaying a stunning blue/green color from one direction and a lovely copper/red from a 90 degree turn. We are sometimes able to manipulate the angles of cutting and show both colors simultaneously. The Oregon material is typically included with “Shiller” or Copper particles that give gemstones a beautiful and unique appearance. This stone has just a touch of the Shiller that gives the stone a glittery effect. It has been hand carved into this relic like freeform piece. The piece has such a nice feel in the hand and is polished beautifully. This stone has a mixes the lovely blue/green color with the red/orange face up, which creates this beautiful and irreparable appearance. When the stone is turned the colors separate to a nearly pure blue/green and then again to nearly pure red/orange. The stone looks almost completely different from each direction. It will look gorgeous in a piece of jewelry and will certainly be a center for attention. These type of carvings are traditionally set into pendants. This stone was carved by Brett Kosnar of Kosnar Gem Co., during July 2017. Enjoy!
