In the highest-quality Sunstone, the liquid clarity of its red, orange, and golden tones increases our response to light and to the warmth of the sun’s infrared rays. This enhanced response brightens the mind, emotions, and body, thereby uplifting our thoughts, mood, and physical energy. Sunstone supports metabolism and circulation by creating warmth and upregulating the body’s ability to discharge energetic and environmental toxins. Wearing Sunstone in times of environmental or emotional darkness can help restore faith, hope, and energy.

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.

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.

Wear It Around Your Neck
One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use a Sunstone necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day. Because of its effects on metabolism and circulation, wearing Sunstone while you are sleeping is not recommended.
If you are experiencing areas of coldness or dampness in your body, you can place Sunstone directly on the spot for 20 to 30 minutes daily. You can gradually increase this time if the condition does not resolve.
It is best to avoid wearing a solid necklace of Sunstone when staying outside all day on hot summer days, when sunbathing, or if your body has a large amount of toxins.
Sunstone 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 Sunstone 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 peak capacity. A simple cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Sunstone. 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.
Clay Cleanse: For a deeper cleansing, occasionally perform a bentonite clay bath or pack.
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.
