Silver Heron Gallery in Depoe Bay is featuring their first annual Oregon Sunstone Jewelry Trunk Show during July and August. The trunk show features one-of-a-kind designs by Northwest jewelry designer Gary Richmond, including Ponderosa Sunstone with precious stones, pearls, gold and silver. The Oregon sunstone is a feldspar crystal formed in molten lava. When the lava erodes away, the crystals are released. Feldspars can be found all over the world, but only in the high desert of Eastern Oregon have they been found in a gem grade and in sizes large enough to cut for jewelry.
