Sunstone cabochon drop shape
Sunstone is also called aventurine feldspar. Its golden spangled effect is due to the presence of tiny platelets of included minerals such as goethite or hematite.

Pope Clement VII (1478-1534) was reputed to have in his possession a sunstone «with a golden spot that moves across the surface in accord with the apparent motion of the sun from sunrise to sunset».

Another type of sunstone, free of inclusion, and with an orange body color just arrived on the market from China, but it is more a collector item than jewelry material.
