There’s a kind of magic in all gemstones but there’s one that is not just unique and beautiful- Sunstone. The name sunstone is used for specimens of translucent feldspar that is responsible for producing bright metallic flashes when light interacts with tiny plate-like mineral inclusions within the stone. These mineral inclusions usually have a common orientation, and light entering the stone reflects from them at a common angle. This produces a flash of light in the eye of the observer who views them at the proper angle. This optical phenomenon is known as "aventurescence."
The property of aventurescence is produced by three different actions:
1.Moving the stone in the light
2.Moving the position of the light
3.Moving the eye of the observer
Sunstone is the gem that is usually popular with innovative jewelry designers and people who have a special affinity towards beautiful gemstone beads. Sunstone is popular with innovative jewelry designers and is especially popular in the geographic areas where it is commercially mined. It is not a gemstone that is seen in every jewelry store, and many jewelry buyers have never witnessed its aventurescence. However, once a person is given a demonstration of sunstone’s aventurescence, they often want to try it and are fascinated. It is a gemstone that sells best if the jeweler takes a moment to educate the buyer about aventurescence.
