Oregon Sunstone or Serenite?


#1

I was told by a friend that I need to acquire some of a new gemstone, Serenite, for my collection before the price rockets. However, I have searched the web but could only find reference at www.gemcollector.com or click directly HERE. Is this a genuine name for this stone or is it simply Oregon Sunstone or Feldspar being marketed by this one company trying to big up the stone and prices.

Thanks for the link. So the answer is that it is Oregon Sunstone, of which I already have a couple of examples, and Gemporia are using the name Serenite as a marketing tool?

IGS it may be worth cross-referencing this name in the database here to point people in the right direction: Gemporia are a big company and the name may stick.
