Sunstone with iolite
The unique combination of sunstone and iolite (cordierite) creates truly unique and highly desirable collector's items!
Sunstone is a type of dull, translucent, sometimes even transparent feldspar. Due to small platelet mineral inclusions inside the stone (usually inclusions of copper, hematite or goethite), which produce bright metallic flashes, we can see an optical phenomenon called "adventency". Sunstones can be variously colored - from bright orange to ocher to clear and transparent with inclusions.
Iolite / cordierite is a mineral from the group of cyclosilicates rich in aluminum. Its crystals show pleochroism - from one point of view it is deep blue-violet, when the stone is turned, the blue disappears completely and appears gray to yellowish smoky. The third color is less noticeable, mostly pale blue.
