Sunstone is a type of feldspar exhibiting in certain directions a brilliant spangled appearance due to reflections from enclosures of red hematite in the form of minute scales. Because of this beautiful affect Sunstone is a popular ornamental stone.
This is a joyful stone.
This gemstone has golden sparkles on the surface to warm the heart, it has an affinity with the sun gods and helps to wash away fears and stress. It also clears darkness and negativity from the chakras leaving them pure and energised. During the Renaissance, this gemstone was associated with the Sun because of its sparkling orange-gold hue. It was used by magicians to call upon the influences of the sun. It is a protective stone. Placed before a white candle, sunstone will spread protective energies throughout your home.
Symbolically, sunstone is linked to moonstone. Carrying the two stones together brings the influences of the Sun (healing, protection, success) into harmony with those of the Moon (love, peace, spirituality).
Wear this stone to stimulate your personal power of attraction, to give extra energy during illness or stress, to increase self-healing power, and to promote harmony among the organs' functions.

The vigorous and valiant energy from this crystal will take you comfortably from conditional love onto the path of unconditional love. The inner voice can create expectations that are akin to identities we have created for ourselves. These identities can be linked to all aspects of life, family, career or lifestyle and as we release these self-inflicted bonds of control we place on ourselves and others we realign our true identity with freewill. This is the path to unconditional love for self and others. Sunstone will gently relax and release the bonds that restrict the flow of unconditional love into and out of our being. It can alleviate feelings of guilt that may arise through conditional love and open the door within to true unconditional love, which some of us may not yet have experienced.
