Sunstone palm stones (pocket stones, touch stones, worry stones) fit nicely into the palm of the hand. These tactile stones are beautiful to display and admire but are small enough to place under a pillow or tuck into a bag or pocket. They can be chosen to hold during meditation or to place on a body part for healing and massage.
The orange-gold hue of sunstone is due to reflections from minute scales of red copper within this aventurine-feldspar.It is related to labradorite, another type of feldspar, and often thought of as the sister stone.
Once believed to be a piece of the sun, sunstone is said to be joyful and nurturing. Emotionally, sunstone is used to help lift dark moods and draining energies. It is believed to heighten intuition and invite joy.
