Sunstone receives its name from its semblance to the sun. It is a feldspar with many small specks of pyrite or copper creating a sparkling effect called aventuresence. Early monks created what we know as goldstone to imitate this stone, which was much desired in past.
               The sunstone embodies the properties of the sun and all attributes that can be applied to that celestial body may be applied to this stone. It was said to have the power to dispel illusions, and held sway over the undead and any other creatures that had reason to fear the day.
