These orange Sunstone gemstone beads have been polished into flat ovals. Sunstone can also be called Aventurine Feldspar which has a metallic reddish orange glitter caused by light reflections from tiny hematite or goethite mineral platelets within the stone. Found in India, Canada, Madagascar, Russia, and the United States. Circa 1980. These are a dark orange color, and I suspect they have been color enhanced.
Sold on 16 inch strands
