Properties: Sunstone is mood lifting and anti-depressant. It supports a sense of self-worth, and allows us to let go of feelings of failure and to believe in luck and happiness again. On a wider level, it helps us to see the world in a better light. It can also 'light up' the past, allowing us to see past experiences in a more positive way and move on. Oregon sunstone is slightly lighter in feel and more powerful than ordinary sunstone. It creates a fan of golden light from the Solar Plexus through the upper chakras. It enables a stronger flow of energy throughout the body and stimulates kidney energy (in the Chinese system). Oregon Sunstone connects with the subtle (etheric) body while ordinary sunstone connects more with the physical body.
