The feldspar group of minerals are the most common on the planet, but the plagioclase feldspar designated Oregon’s Official State Gem by the Oregon legislature in 1987 is found nowhere else. At a hardness of 6.5-7.2 on the Moh’s scale it is comparable to agate and quartz and suitable for most any jewelry application. Sunstone speaks of our roots as dyed in the wool rock hounds. We’re so deep into Sunstone that each summer we work our own mining claims in south east Oregon -DFJD
