Comments : This type of sunstone is unique to Oregon in the United States. It has a facinating copper schiller inclusion that gives gems a wonderful inner glow and when it catches the sunlight is really is something to behold. With this fine sunstone I was able to position the gem right in the middle of the patch of copper within the rough stone. This maximised the amount of copper schiller I was able to get from the stone and I was very happy with the results.

There is a pic of the original rough stone and you can see the blob of copper within from which this gem was cut.

Cut By : Doug Menadue 2017

Design : Step Cut
Origin : Oregon
Treatments : None
Weight : 31.81 Carats
Clarity : Eye Clean *The copper schiller is a natural inclusion and a desired feature of this type of stone.

Comments : Here is something very special! Large Oregon sunstone with this quality of copper schiller is a very rare stone. This gem is an exceptional example of such a rare beast. Firstly, it is large and clean (of flaws that is) and that is something to be noted. Sunstone often has flaws, veils and the like and is often only seen in smaller sizes because of this.

But what makes this wonderful Oregon sunstone so special is the incredible and beautiful display of copper schiller ideally positioned inside the stone. It is like a fall of copper rain and the way the sun strikes it is truly something to behold. It is mesmerizing and I find myself tilting the stone backwards and forwards to capture that dazzling flash. It is a very captivating stone and when it is set on your finger or as a pendant you'll find your eye constantly drawn to it.

I step cut this gem in a freestyle manner following the natural shape and form of the piece of rough. I wanted to maximise the size of the gem as much as possible whilst ensuring that the proportions and aesthetics were pleasing to the eye. I also wanted to keep the depth of the stone relatively shallow so that it would sit low on the finger as a ring stone or nicely against the chest as a pendant. I can see this beautiful Oregon sunstone worked in rose gold as the rose colour would complement the copper of the schiller perfectly, afterall, copper is a component of rose gold and is what gives it the "rosey" appearance.

This is an exceptional sunstone and would suit the collector of fine gems or someone who wants a special and amazing piece of jewellery.
