Genuine Sunstone cabochon secured in hand-woven raw copper wire with a smaller sunstone accent.
Just like the Sun its named for, Sunstone brings joy. It is believed to be a stone of positivity, warmth, energy, and blessings. The shimmer in the stone comes from tiny goethite or hematite inclusions that refract the light. Many believe Sunstone to provide a life bearing energy that encourages the wearer to "get out and live life".
Different shades of Sunstone apply to different Chakras: the darker the color, the more it applies to the Root Chakra, while the lighter, paler shades apply to the Sacral (or Naval) Chakra. Likewise, different shades apply to different birth months, beginning with the lightest color for Leo, and ending with the darkest color for Scorpio. It is not a traditional birthstone or zodiac stone, but it is most beneficial to those born under Virgo and Aries signs.
This pendant is approximately 2” in drop length including the bail. Chain not included: listing is for the pendant only. A polishing cloth is included with the piece in a damask jewelry box suitable for gifting.
