Oregon Sunstone is the State Gem of Oregon, which is the Only source for this beautiful Gem. Most of the Oregon Sunstone has a metallic appearance due to reflective copper Schiller. Cleaner colored sunstone without Schiller is MUCH, MUCH rarer and commands true Collector Gemstone prices! It is a rare and sought after item that is growing in popularity and price. Oregon Sunstone differs from sunstones found in other worldwide locales in color, a strong pleochroism, and a glittering Schiller effect created by pure native copper. In fact Oregon is the only known deposit of this rare Copper Bearing Feldspar, Labradorite.

The ISG has proved that Andesine-Labradorite is a FRAUD!

  There is a lot of new information being released about where the Andesine/Labradorite material that has been showing up on the open market is NOT coming from, a mine in Mongolia by the Tibet border or the Congo. As far as enhancement it is cooked and enhanced, and the reason for such large quantities of identical color at such low pricing.

  The International School of Gemology has proved that Andesine Labradorite is a fake gemstone and that the public has been lead astray with false marketing and testimony about origin of Andesine Labradorite. Please visit their website for the real story about Andesine Labradorite and its treatment at www.schoolofgemology.com/GemResearch/researchindex.html

Below is a common grading system that is in use for grading finished Oregon Sunstone. Oregon Sunstone is graded by grade of color and color type. It is also graded for type of Schiller, if present. Rough is graded according to the type of finished stone it will most likely produce. All rough crystals require surface cleanup and are priced accordingly. Rough crystals that have been cleaned up will command a higher price.

Collector   

Rare intense color and exceptional beauty

Grading of Oregon Sunstone is determined buy the above classifications, or a combination of them.

Almost all colored crystals have some form of Schiller. Schiller is particles of suspended copper that forms within the crystal. Copper is the main coloring agent in Oregon Sunstone, therefore colored stone with no Schiller will receive a higher price value. Schiller makes identifying a natural untreated cut stone or rough quite easy. Schiller is something like rutile in Rutilated Quartz and creates uniqueness unmatched by any other. Schiller comes in many forms, from heavy saturated deposit within a crystal to a single wire strand. Common terms used to describe the look of this phenomena are, plate(s), banded, barred, feather, vale, wires, speckle (tiny dots), but all enhance the beauty of the finished stone.

Color grading is determined by the amount of color saturation, how light or dark and type of color. The following is a list of colors found in Oregon Sunstone, from the most common to the rarest.

Yellow (Champagne)

Schiller (Pure Copper Particles within the Host Crystal)

Orange Red, Copper Red (Cinnamon)

Bi-Color

Watermelon (Red surrounded by Green)

Pigeon Blood Red, Maroon Red

Dichroic and Trichroic (Color Shift)

True Red

Green

Blue (Usually a blue-green or teal)
