Sun Stone (Smooth) - Large
The spiritual meaning of Sunstone is the representation of the ultimate energetic source of light, warmth, and life on our planet.
Its rich reddish-orange facets contain all the healing power as the star, which shines high in our sky. It is the representation of Ra in Egyptian mythology and Helios in Greek mythology, both representations of sun gods.
Even further back, indigenous peoples believed that this crystal fell during solar eclipses, a part of our sun fallen from heaven.
Other cultures refer to it as a “phenomenal stone” for its way in which the light changed off its many angles during the day, with some even only wearing it on Sunday.
Sunstone is a stone of the divine masculine energy. As a perfect complementary stone to Moonstone, Sunstone embodies the Yang half of the Yin Yang duality, the part of universal life force energy which centers around expansion, action, forward movement, and linear qualities.
By working with Sunstone, you can begin to develop your masculine qualities, regardless of your gender.
This means that specific tasks or challenges which require more masculine energy will become more accessible, such as increasing assertiveness, leading groups of people, or completing tasks that require you to work alone, relying on only your strength.
Sunstone has also been used in spiritual ceremonies and rituals throughout the ages. First Nations in Canada incorporated Sunstone into their medicine wheel healing ceremonies.
By placing Sunstone in the medicine wheel’s center, they were able to show their patients the healing power of the sun. When contacted by a spirit guide, the stone would change different colors and shine.
