Ah, sweet yet fiery Sunstone. This crystal is one that is so enchanting and alluring; it’s strong and empowering, yet happy and uplifting. Sunstone is able to be dichotomous in this way because it enhances our strength from the inside. Think of Sunstone as a fiery, burning sun in your solar plexus, warming you to be content and happy, but also channel and harness the strength you knew you had deep inside.
Sunstone is firstly considered a joyous stone – it helps us to feel alive and enthusiastic! It has a strong connection to the sun (hence its name), and is said to be incredibly lucky, bringing good fortune to the wearer or keeper. It helps you see the joy in situation, bringing a vitality and happy energy that can uplift the mood and emotional state. Sunstone is said to alleviate depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder, and stimulate the lower chakras (but please remember that this is not medical advice, and the stones are not replacements for a doctor!). It’s associated with the zodiac signs of Leo and Libra.
What I love most about sunstone is that it is empowering: it’s a wonderful stone for someone who has trouble defending or standing up for themselves, or simply saying NO when it is needed. Sunstone reminds us that when we care and respect ourselves deeply enough to take care of ourselves in this way, that happiness, energy, vitality and success are not only possible, but waiting. It’s a stone of self worth, self care, and empowerment.
Sunstone is a wonderful stone for mothers, teachers, social workers, mental health professionals, Reiki or energy healers, massage therapists, or anyone working in a field that requires giving of ourselves to others, because it reminds us that you should care for yourself in order to be of service to others.
The hexagon represents some of the most powerful sacred geometry. Did you know that honeybees create their homes – honeycomb – in perfect hexagonal shapes? Within these cells, they store food, raise their young, and care for the queen. While it is found throughout nature, in spiritual practice and religious ritual, the hexagon represents harmony and balance. It is at the center of the Star of David; is found in the structure of our DNA, and reverberates through time, history, and our physical plane, as the foundation of life itself.
In bloodstone form, these crystals are immensely healing to physical bodies, and the wounds we carry through time.

**Please note: I can’t choose an individual stone for you, nor can I photograph individual pieces. These “intuitively chosen” group listings are quite affordable because I don’t photograph each stone individually – it saves me time so it saves you money! Rest assured EACH and every Sunstone tumble in this listing is absolutely unique, one of a kind, and beautiful. They ALL carry the wonderful metaphysical properties of this wonderful crystal!
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. They are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered the elements and more for untold number of years, and I cannot guarantee perfection or perfect points. These are natural objects. All photographs are taken outside, in natural sunlight, and the photos are NEVER altered. 🙂
