Grading of Oregon Sunstone is determined buy the above classifications, or a combination of them.
Almost all colored crystals have some form of Schiller. Schiller is particles of suspended copper that
forms within the crystal. Copper is the main coloring agent in Oregon Sunstone, therefore colored
stone with no Schiller will receive a higher price value. Schiller makes identifying a natural untreated
cut stone or rough quite easy. Copper Schiller is something like rutile in Rutilated Quartz and creates
uniqueness unmatched by any other. Schiller comes in many forms, from heavy saturated deposits
within a crystal to a single wire strand. Common terms used to describe the look of this phenomena
are, plate(s), banded, barred, feather, vale, wires, snowflake or speckle (tiny dots), but all enhance the
beauty of the finished stone.
