Mineralogy and Geology of Sunstone

Sunstone is a variety of feldspar (microcline, oligoclase, or labradorite) that has schiller (a shimmery effect), commonly with an orange/brown background color, due to exsolved, oriented small hematite crystals that give its characteristic sparkle / flash.

Oregon sunstone is a labradorite that contains copper crystals instead of hematite.
