    Thank you all so much. The rare Oregon Sunstone briolettes make this piece special for me. Canby, OR has a gem and mineral show free to the public every Labor Day and I try to make it over because the vendors carry a nice supply of Oregon Gems. They mine off the land, have it cut and then have it at this show. I’m always amazed at range of color from this clear, pale yellow to rich transparent green and red. And the schiller effect; this is Oregon’s State gemstone for a reason, it carries the sunshine 24/7.
