The orange and brown background minerals contain small hematite crystals both of which give it a sparkling appearance. This type of sunstone is oligoclase sunstone which has an apperance similar to that of aventurine and often forms alongside orthoclase, another feldspar mineral which is pink in colour and is often found in plutonic environments where igneous rocks such as granite, syenite, and diorite are present. These samples are available in two sizes only and come supplied in a card tray with an information label.
