Here is a wonderful specimen of Oregon Sunstone in it's basalt matrix. This specimen was acquired from the Pana - Mine in Plush Oregon some years ago.

If you have ever seen Oregon sunstone from the Sunstone Butte area of Plush, then you know the volcanic basalt is intact unlike the lower sunstone basin where the basalt has eroded into a clay - like substance.

This volcanic basalt is very light weight, almost nothing to it. Almost all the weight of this specimen is the sunstone.

The sunstone crystal present in this specimen is so filled with Copper platelets or Schiller as it is known, that it looks like a bright new penny inside. The sunstone is approx. 1.7 cm thick.

The specimen measures 5.0 cm x 4.5 cm x 3.0 cm, and weighs 47.7 grams. The crystal area of the specimen measures 4.5 cm x 1.2 cm x 1.7 cm.
