Oregon Sunstone is a feldspar available in colours ranging from rose to red or petrol. Its hardness – between 6.5 and 7.2 on the Mohs scale – distinguishes it as a gemstone.
Oregon Sunstone can only be found in these intensive colour tones in two mining areas in Oregon – making it one of the rarest stones we know.
We have been the European representatives of the Ponderosa Mine in Oregon, USA, since 2011 and can thus offer this stone exclusively to you.
The mine’s owners highly value environmentally-friendly mining. Beyond this, they also offer young adults participating in a social project the opportunity to take part in the mining process. We visited the mine in 2012 and were able to gain our own impressions of the mining process and conditions on site.
