Finding the Right Sunstone!

In the case of these stones, the inclusions are often in the form of tiny plates copper, goethite, and hematite depositions that can change the appearance of the sunstones.

Most of the time, these inclusions increase their desirability as they are reflective and enchant the viewer by emitting unique flashes of light. Usually these inclusions are extremely small and are not visible to the naked eye as they are very thin. Only a trained gemologist can detect them with the help of a microscope.

The cost of these stones is also dependent on the cut. If it is cut at random orientation then the reflection of light will be optimal; and hence cost low.
