Oregon sunstone comes from southeasten oregon, often referred to as the oregon outback. Sunstone occurs in a range of colors that begin with colorless and ranges through to yellow, orange and red.The color is determined by the abundance and size of the copper platelets within the gemstone. The copper platelets impart a green, pink or reddish color to the stone. Some exceptional stones can show more than one color.
It can start off pink and on the other side of the stone be bolder and strengthen in color which could be orange. Sunstone is an amazing specimen. It is translucent to transparent feldspar that produces bright metallic flashes when light interacts with tiny plate-like mineral inclusions within the stone. When light enters the stone it reflects a flash of light in the eye of the observer who views the gemstone at the correct angle.
