Sunstone/Oligoclase

Oligoclase or, as we prefer to call it, Sunstone, is a common feldspar. It is mainly found in Tweedestrand, which is in Norway.

The name of the mineral Oligoclase is derived from the Greek words 'oligos' and 'klasein' meaning 'little splitting'.

Sunstone beads a legend:

There is a beautiful Viking legend about Sunstone. This one describes a glowing 'Sun Stone' that indicates the position of the sun when you hold it in the air. This works even on a cloudy day. Researchers now believe that that stone actually existed. By having experiments with a similar stone found by archaeologists thirty years ago. 'Our' Sunstone!

Navigators could have used the crystal to navigate thousands of miles on cloudy days. dr. Guy Ropars of the University of Rennes says that 'a precision of a few degrees could be achieved' with the found stone, even when the sun was already behind the horizon. Ropars and his team also believe that the Vikings might have gotten to North America that way, many years before Columbus made the discovery of the New World.

Sunstone beads and vikings

The crystal was found thirty years ago in the wreck of a British ship off the coast of Alderney, the northernmost Channel Island. The ship sank in 1592, four years before the Spanish Armada was defeated.

The Viking legend speaks of a cloudy and snowy day when King Olaf asked Sigurd for advice on the position of the sun. To confirm Sigurd's advice, Olaf "grabbed a sunstone, looked up at the sky and saw where the light came from, then he guessed where the invisible sun was."

Sunstone bead and polarization

The crystal can show the position of the sun by polarizing the light in the sky. Many animals, such as bees, use polarization as a means of navigation. The sun's rays bend due to the polarization, so that the position of the sun can be deduced even after the celestial body has already set. Isn't that a wonderful story?
