Sunstone Polished Chunks - These natural Sunstone Chunks come to us from Tanzania and are polished on the face of one side. Sunstone is a gem variety of Feldspar and a cousin of Labradorite. Feldspar is a family of silicates that makes up about 60% of the Earth's crust. Sunstone is known for its iridescent reflections or "flash" when it catches the light.
Metaphysically, Sunstone is known for its powerful connection to the light and power of the sun. Sunstone brings light to all situations, and carrying a piece around with you can help your personal power to "shine." Once known as a stone of good luck, Sunstone has a bright, joyful energy that increases vitality and lightens dark moods.
Sunstone helps empower those who feel persecuted or abandoned by others instilling confidence, optimism, encouraging motivation, and positive action. Sunstone is also useful in removing energy-draining ties to you or "hooks" into your energy by other people.
Sunstone is a great stone for the Solar Plexus Chakra, but can clear and energize all chakras. Sunstone was used by the Canadian Indians in medicine wheel rituals, by the ancient Greeks to represent the Sun Gods, and in ancient India for protection from dark forces from other realms.
