Tips for Choosing
Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.
Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.
Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

Golden Sun offers the therapeutic benefits of Sunstone, though to a lesser degree than a solid Sunstone necklace. In Golden Sun, Quartz and Golden Beryl balance the Sunstone’s heat while allowing the warmth and wisdom of your soul to radiate more easily through your energy field. Sunstone’s warmth, light, and upliftment can thereby penetrate the clouds of illusion, discouragement, and heaviness that can accumulate in and around us.
The Quartz in Golden Sun amplifies focuses, and balances Sunstone’s energies throughout your being. The Golden Beryl brings greater awareness of causal influences. While the heating properties of Sunstone are made somewhat less intense, the effects of Golden Sun are very close to those of a solid Sunstone necklace.
Sunstone’s Therapeutic Effects
When worn around the neck, Sunstone acts as our own personal energetic sunny day. Sunstone brings light, warmth, and power to our being and radiates this light to the people around us. Wearing a high-quality Sunstone necklace allows us to experience the multidimensional brightening, clarity, and illumination that this gemstone brings to the mind, body, and emotions.
Sunstone helps increase the body’s natural ability to absorb energy from light and warmth, and thereby enhances circulation and metabolism. Thus, Sunstone can greatly assist people who are suffering from poor circulation, coldness, sluggishness, or fatigue. The light of Sunstone creates a sense of upliftment in both our emotions and thoughts. It can even illuminate dark places in our thinking, emotions, and tissues.
Many of the body’s functions depend on maintaining an optimal metabolism and ability to process energy in our mitochondria and cells. What many people do not know is that the circulation of our blood and other important fluids throughout the body depend on the structure of the body’s water and its ability to absorb warmth and the photons of light from the environment. In effect, our bodies act as electromagnetic batteries of positive and negative charges that function in response to energy waves from the sun.
Sunstone helps this process by enhancing our ability to absorb and use light and warmth. By doing so, it helps uplift, enliven, and purify our physical tissues. This effect can help us increase circulation and metabolism, burn fat, detoxify the chemicals and heavy metals that may be stored in the body’s tissues. Thus, Sunstone can greatly assist when you want to increase your physical warmth, energy, and circulation on cold days or when you are otherwise experiencing inadequate light and warmth.
Restoring Light to Emotional Realms
Sunstone brings warmth, light, and hope to the emotional body. This emotional warmth can be experienced as an uplifted mood, greater optimism, or more confidence in yourself and life in general. Just as the sun is always available to bring life and warmth to the planet every day, Sunstone reminds us that our inner, spiritual sun is also available to us. Our inner sun is our connection with the divine source that is always present to feed us hope, strength, and vitality. Both sunlight and divine light are free and always available to power our wellbeing. Sunstone helps us access this source.
Cleansing Our Shadow Thoughts
Sunstone shines a light on the dark places of the mind, revealing what we might be hiding from ourselves. So many of our fears and doubts are just shadows, imaginary thoughts, and false beliefs. Sunstone helps us see the falseness in these shadows by turning up the light in our minds. Greater light reveals that many of our darkest thoughts and feelings are illusions that only seemed real and scary in the darkness. By turning on the light, we can see and realize that the “monster in the corner“ was really just a pile of clothes we left on a chair.
Of course, sometimes by increasing the light we can also see where we might have been lying to ourselves about something and where we may have to confront our own truths.
Sunstone is a plagioclase feldspar, which is characterized by a spangled, sparkly appearance. A necklace of high-quality therapeutic Sunstone possesses abundant, liquid translucency and crystalline clarity in bright tones of red, orange, and gold. This special Sunstone is currently very rare. Dense, milky-white Sunstone is nontherapeutic.
To receive the maximum therapeutic benefits from Quartz, only optical or near-optical quality spheres should be used. Optical-quality Quartz is colorless, clear, and free from flaws to the naked eye. Such flaws include cracks and inclusions, or foreign matter. Near-optical Quartz has very slight flaws in a small portion of the sphere but is otherwise identical to optical quality. If a Quartz sphere has anything more than very slight flaws, its ability to balance your physical, emotional, and mental bodies will be significantly inhibited.
Therapeutic Quartz also has no hint of yellow, gray, brown, or smoky coloration. Color contamination and internal flaws greatly limit the spheres’ inflow and outflow of energy.
People who wear lower-quality Quartz may still feel some effects, since any gemstone will influence an individual's energetic field. However, only the highest quality Quartz necklace—one with deeply frosted, optical or near-optical quality spheres and precisely cut drill holes—will spark the true changes and transformations one seeks from this gemstone. Optical-quality Quartz is extremely rare. Yet it is well worth seeking out, since a necklace made of such Quartz radiates an incomparable energy.
The color of therapeutic-quality Golden Beryl ranges from golden-yellow to a rich golden hue, with no tint of amber or brown. The deeper the color, the stronger are the gems’ energy and therapeutic effects.
Because Golden Beryl does not directly affect the physical or emotional bodies, its therapeutic-quality requirements are somewhat different from many other gemstones. The color and clarity should allow the gems’ energies to reach the causal body as quickly and easily as possible. Golden Beryl with a rich golden color can support minor inclusions, or flaws, because they tend not to hinder the gems’ ability to radiate into the causal body. Because lighter-colored Golden Beryl isn’t as strong, it must be freer from inclusions.
Very tiny cracks are acceptable in Golden Beryl, as long as the color is good; they will simply deflect the gem’s light in a slightly different direction. However, therapeutic Golden Beryl contains no black spots, which act as voids and cancel out the gem’s energy wherever they are present.
Gemisphere’s Golden Beryl meets or exceeds all therapeutic-quality requirements. It is completely natural and entirely free of any treatments that would artificially enhance its color or clarity and thus render the gems nontherapeutic.

Wear It Around Your Neck
One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use a Golden Sun necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day. It is not recommended to be used while you are sleeping.
A Golden Sun necklace can be placed on any of the chakras for 10 to 30 minutes to bring more light, warmth, energy, and circulation to the area. Placements on the sacral chakra and solar plexus are particularly good choices to bring increased circulation and warmth to both the pelvic and abdominal areas, especially if you are suffering from coldness or sluggishness.
You can place Golden Sun on your legs and the tops of your feet for 10 to 45 minutes if you have poor circulation in these areas.
If your hands suffer from coldness or poor circulation, holding the necklace in your hands under warm running water can increase circulation there. Perform this treatment for 3 to 5 minutes, 3 to 5 times per week.
To uplift your mood and bring clarity and energy to your brain, you can place a Golden Sun necklace on the crown of your head for 10 to 20 minutes.
Golden Sun can be used first thing in the morning to fully awaken the body, and it can be worn for hours at a time. It is generally best not to wear it to bed or late in the evening if you have difficulty sleeping.
As always, it is wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the gems by wearing them for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish.
Cleanse Golden Sun Regularly
To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Golden Sun necklace. Learn more about these methods.
Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week during use, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.
Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week during use, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.
Water Rinse: 2 – 3 times a week during use, rinse the gems in alternating cool and warm water. Avoid using hot or cold water.
Special Note: Avoid clay cleansing, which may dull the Golden Beryl’s polish.
When Your Necklace First Arrives
When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
