Oregon Sunstone

The ancestors of the Northern Paiute and Modoc tribes were likely among the first people to find and use Oregon sunstone. In the late nineteenth century, ranchers came into Rabbit Basin and cowboys picked up the Sunstone, trading it to local stores and beyond. Eventually, the stones passed under the noses of Tiffany & Co. in New York City, and they marketed it under the nickname "plush diamond."  Only the Oregon Sunstone has copper inclusions, referred to as "schiller," giving it unique colors, though it can be found in many places all over the globe.
