One-of-a-Kind Treasure: Oregon Sunstone
Own a rare Oregon treasure and the official state gemstone! Necklaces, earrings, rings… the Museum Store is stocked with a wide selection of fine jewelry made from one of the rarest gems the world. The Oregon Sunstone is only found in the heart of the south central Oregon outback. Native American legend tells of a fierce battle that took place near the Ochoco Mountains, and as the great warriors of the prevailing tribe made their way across the Warner Valley back to their homes, droplets of blood fell from their wounds and were absorbed into the Oregon Sunstone. The gemstone is believed to harness the sacred power of the mighty warrior spirit.
Jenny Byrne, Zealandia's creator, was born in New Zealand and has woven her initial love of the natural materials found on the beaches and rivers of the world, and a fascination with spiritual and mythological art, into an unusual line of silver, gold, and fossilized ivory jewelry. Zealandia Designs uses all natural materials, combining several elements such as silver, gold, fossilized walrus tusk, ancient mammoth ivory, semi-precious stones, mother of pearl, and the vibrantly colored paua. Each piece is individually crafted in Bali, Indonesia, making your jewelry as unique as the fossilized ivory from which it was created.
