Comment: Well, truth be told, this is terrific gem but it also is very photogenic. The concave cut on that intense beautiful colour is just camera and mind-boggling. Study the distant handshot (more images): concave cuts darken a gem until it is hit by direct light and then the firework begins. Sunstone is a relative new entry in the coloured gem market but I have no doubt that this quality will one day compete with fine Spinel or even Ruby (seven carats being a serious size here). At times it glows like a coal and then, as we move the gem, it splits into dozens of single rays. Full GIA report with no treatments and trade name 'Oregon Sunstone'. Cut in South Africa. In this hue the name 'Sunstone' makes sense (though they come in all colours). Less flashy than main image, but not for the shy either. One single needle can be found only with the lens.

Here is an GIA update on Oregon Sunstones.
