Oregon State Gems is a family owned and operated enterprise in possession of one of the largest known reserves of gem quality sunstones in the world. Like the State of Oregon, who in 1987 made the sunstone its official state gem, Oregon State Gems has realized the potential of the sunstone and has proven its reserves. With over 1,500 acres of gem quality claims, the corporation has made the sunstone available in large quantities in specific color ranges.
Oregon State Gems was the first mining operation to apply optical sorting technology to sunstone production. Before this, gem quality sunstones were limited in supplies that would support world markets with duration. Now with the advent of optical sorting and in combination with vast reserves, Oregon State Gems proudly presents on nature?s behalf the Oregon Sunstone to the world.
