Sunstone Crystals Meanings and Properties

Sunstone Crystals Meanings and Properties

Oregon Sunstone is slightly lighter in feel and more powerful than ordinary sunstone. It creates a "fan" of golden light from the Solar Plexus up through the body. It enables a stronger flow of energy throughout the body and stimulates kidney energy (in the Chinese system). It connects with the subtle body while ordinary sunstone connects more with the physical. In Oregon Sunstone, the sparkle comes from inclusions of Copper rather than Hematite.
