Metaphysically, Sunstone is known for its powerful connection to the light and power of the sun. Sunstone brings light to all situations, and carrying a piece around with you can help your personal power to "shine." Once known as a stone of good luck, Sunstone has a bright, joyful energy that increases vitality and lightens dark moods.
Sunstone helps empower those who feel persecuted or abandoned by others instilling confidence, optimism, encouraging motivation, and positive action. Sunstone is also useful in removing energy-draining ties to you or "hooks" into your energy by other people.
