Sunstone is part of the feldspar family. While sunstone is found in localities throughout the world, Oregon Sunstone is the exclusive locale for sunstone colored by the presence of copper. This creates a range of beautiful and unique colors available in this gemstone. Oregon Sunstone also exhibits an effect known as copper schiller (or aventurescence); this phenomenon is most easily described as a metallic glitter which appears suspended within the gemstone.


Derek Katzenbach combines classical shapes with modern faceting patterns in a precise execution, bridging the line between traditional and contemporary cuts. His innovative approach and exquisite execution has earned Derek many awards and honors in both the gemstone and jewelry industries.
