When you think of gemstones, places like South America, India and South Africa come to mind. But there are ten states in North America that are brilliant sources of amazing and rare gemstones. Oregon, being one of them. So, naturally that is where we went to procure the finest Sunstones America has to offer.
Sunstone Butte Mine (pronounced “beaut”) in southeast Oregon produces ethically-sourced sunstones that were created by cooled lava that flowed in the Oregon Valley millions of years ago. These are the only sunstones in the world to include glittering copper flakes that create a subtle but wondrous optical effect. We’ve brought you this American beauty in its rarest shade–– a gorgeous copper kissed verdant green unlike any color you’ve ever seen.
It’s all attributed to the delicate balance of copper and how it’s crystals are aligned. This gorgeous, one-of-a-kind American-born sunstone is set in 14K yellow gold and framed with white diamonds. An amazing piece of gemological heritage born right here in the USA.
