When Sunstone viewed from certain directions, it exhibits a brilliant spangled appearance, which led to its use as a gemstone.

Sunstones come in a wide range of colors, such as Red, Orange, Pink, Light Pink, Yellow, Green, Bi-color and Tri-color.  The Bi-color/Tri-color can be any of the Sunstone colors in combination.  The better the color separation, the more desirable the stone.  Some of the bi-colors very strongly resemble Alexandrite, others the reds of fiery Spinel and some Tourmaline and Andalusite. Bi-color and Red Sunstones are the most valuable.
