Accompanying value information:
View Oregon Sunstone Profile

The International Gem Society (IGS) has a list of businesses offering gemstone appraisal services.

Pale yellow to colorless, non-phenomenal Oregon sunstones, whether native-cut or calibrated stones, may go for a few dollars per carat to $20 per carat for a custom cut. Pinks and tans, with and without a schiller effect, commonly range up to $50 per carat, depending on the effect.

Opaque, cabbed stones are modestly priced. Some greens, strong pinks, and reds, as well as bi-colored and tri-colored stones, with and without schiller, range from $50 to $300 per carat.

Large stones (over three carats) with an intense red color may retail for as much as $1,700 per carat. The best greens are very rare and may cost more than the best reds.
