Sunstone is a stone of abundance and joy that nurtures the spirit. Sunstone brings emotional strength and protects one from those who may be draining their energies, by removing their emotional hooks from you and leaving a feeling of being surrounded with love and positive energy. It teaches one to nurture their self in order to nurture and help others, making it beneficial to those who may have trouble saying “no”. It helps to restore independence and originality by bringing empowerment to one and restoring confidence and self-worth, allowing any self-doubt or fears to be released. Sunstone lifts depression and Seasonal Affective Disorder and helps to alleviate fearfulness and stress, especially in those with phobias.
