Sunstone And Its Magical Properties



The sunstone is a stone that originates in a couple of different places. There are a couple of types. The first kind is a natural sunstone that can look like an orange opal. This stone is usually imported from India. The other sunstone is called Oregon Sunstone. This stone obviously originates from Oregon.

Sunstones are very useful and like other crystals they have magical properties as well as healing. They can be used to enhance rituals and used to heal certain ailments. Not to mention I kind of like their orange color. It's a special color that almost has a calming effect.

In this hub you'll discover what sunstones can be used for to help you in life. You'll learn the magical properties. What element is the sunstone of? What are the zodiac signs of the stone? All of those questions will be answered.


Crystals can indeed be used in healing. It's called crystal healing. Make sure that you keep your crystals cleansed as well as charged. Crystals can absorb all kinds of energy including negative by cleansing them you can take care of that. Sunstones have remarkable healing properties. They are capable of helping out the functions of all of our organs. If you are one that is struggling with lack of sleep this stone can help ride of that tired feeling.

Sunstones can aid with depression as well, increasing self-esteem and ridding of any feelings of failure that one may have.

These stones have also been used to treat sore throats along with pain that stomach ulcers may cause. This stone is actually great with pain altogether no matter what the area may be. Like cartilage issues or rheumatism.

To use the sunstone in healing you may carry the stone on you or wear it. You may also rub the stone in the area of pain. If you use the stone by rubbing it in the area of pain visualize the pain or ailment leaving your body and entering the crystal.

I always like to add a note when I talk about natural and alternative healing methods. Crystal healing will not harm your body or react to it like herbs or medications however I'd like to say that I wouldn't fully rely on it. I like to do it if all else fails. Sometimes though I'll give it a shot before going to the doctor and sit time limit. For example if I have a cold and use a stone for healing and the pain doesn't go away by the set time then I'll go to the doctor. Do not fully rely on crystal healing.

Magical Properties

The sunstone is of the element Fire and it is of the zodiac sign Leo. The stone symbolizes approaching success. This stone has a very positive effect on people. It's a stone of humor and joy. Because of this it'd also make sense that the sunstone can also give us energy as needed.

Sunstones can have a good effect on someone's sexual relationship. This stone is powerful and can be used for protection. You may use a sunstone to enhance the capability of another stone in a spell or ritual or even while carrying a stone on you or while healing.

While this stone may be used on all of our Chakras it's most helpful on the Naval Chakra and can help one in self nurturing. If the Sunstone is placed on the solar plexus it can lift away any heavy or hidden emotions.


If you are one who is seeking out more energy in life or a more positive outlook on life then perhaps the sunstone is for you. The mere color of this stone has a wonderful effect, at least on me. Just take a look at the picture and tell me what you think. Sunstones are beautiful and full of their own energies that they place upon us as needed. They can help us with plenty of things whether it be healing or giving us the jolt of energy that we need. It wouldn't hurt to keep one of these babies on you.
