Sunstone as beads for jewellery making

Sunstone is a red semi-precious stone which was used as a navigation instrument by the Vikings to calculate the position of the sun. The stone can be found in Norway, Sweden and the US. When it is held towards a setting sun, it refracts the light. The red colour shade and the light refracting property of sunstone are due to its inclusion of cobber. Sunstone is a feldspar and - because of its likeness to aventurine - it is also known as aventurine-feldspar.
