Sunstone: Traditional Use and Importance
In ancient Greek mythology, the sun stone was associated with the sun god Helios, who was considered equal to Zeus. Helio's task was to steer the sun chariot in the sky. He did this in collaboration with his two sisters, Selene, the moon goddess, and Eos, the dawn. The stone was supposed to help him keep his car on track. In crystal healing, the sun stone is traditionally said to have warming and illuminating properties. It is increasingly used in depression and is said to support strength and optimism with its sunny power. The radiant sun stone is often bought as a companion for warm-heartedness and can help radiance to shine again. In Indian teaching, the fiery, powerful sun stone is traditionally assigned to the sacral chakra and is traditionally used in Asia to promote energetic potency.

Sunstone: color and transparency
The basic color of the sun stone is a delicate red, orange and yellow in many gentle gradations and sometimes even with a tendency towards brown. The stone, which belongs to the feldspar group, also has an elegant glitter that is caused by inclusions of hematite and iron oxides. This makes it an eye-catcher in our range. It can have a translucent to transparent transparency and thus intensifies its appealing play of colors, which already inspires many viewers when they buy it.
Sunstone: Cleanse, discharge and charge
Strong pressure and heat can have a negative effect on the sun stone and should be avoided. The beautiful stone should be rinsed under running water at lukewarm temperature every 14 days after purchase, so it is cleaned and discharged. It is then placed in the sun's rays to recharge it. Important: The darker the ordered sun stone, the shorter the time of exposure to the sun should be in order to avoid overcharging!
