Product Description

This necklace is made with golden Sunstone, Amber, and brown tinted Smokey Quartz.  The  Sunstones measure roughly 8mm by 5mm and I used PMC Paper Clay for the bezel settings and traditional chain mail techniques to join each bezel so the necklace bends and moves freely. The necklace measures 18 inches in length but is adjustable up to 21 inches.

Sunstone History

In the early 1800s sunstone was a little-known, rare, and costly gemstone. It wasn’t until finds in Norway, Siberia, and other parts of the world that sunstone became somewhat more widely recognized, more available, and less expensive. In the US state of Oregon in the early 1900s, there were reports of sunstone finds in ancient lava fields in a desert area called Warner Valley. Even earlier, Native Americans in that area might have been the first collectors of Warner Valley sunstones.

According to Native American legend, the blood of a great warrior – wounded by an arrow - dropped onto pieces of Oregon sunstone. The blood carried his warrior spirit into the stones, coloring them with shades of red and giving them sacred power. A museum in Jacksonville, Oregon, includes sunstones in its display of Indian artifacts. In Oregon today, several mining claims produce enough of this unique material to supply mass marketers as well as carvers and high-end jewelry designers.
