Rainbow Lattice is a very rare and unusual stone. It is a type of feldspar which is predominantly
Moonstone that is made up of 75% orthoclase and 25% albite.
The inclusions (internal features) are referred to as: the result of crystalographically oriented exsolution crystals within the feldspar mass.
Whilst the initial testing of the stones inclusions conducted in 1989 concluded that the inclusions were made up of ilmenite (for the black blades and triangles) and hematite (for the orange platelets).
With the advancement in technology over the last 3 decades, a recently conducted more in depth analysis has found the black blades and triangle inclusions in Rainbow Lattice to be magnetite.
A paper with these results will be published soon by authors from the the Gemmological Institute, China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and it will be published in The Journal of Gemmology by Gem-A.
Hematite (Fe2O3) - small, yellow to deep orange platelets which can be hexagonal shape and are generally in one plane within the Feldspar. This effect is called aventurescence, or Sunstone effect, and gives some of the gems their orange glow.
Magnetite (Fe3O4) Iron Oxide which creates the lattice effect. This forms as a very thin blades that occur in one plane at different levels (like pages in a book). These blades orientate (north/south) in different levels by a process known as lamellar twinning and also displays “Sagentic twinning”, which forms the lattice pattern. The magnetite inclusions in many cases have oxidized or altered through geophysical processes to give the iridescence or rainbow effect across the lattice patterning. The magnetite that has no alteration remains black with a metallic sheen. The magnetite also predominantly forms triangles and even the lattice pattern has triangular terminations.
It is a rare occurrence when Sunstone occurs in a Moonstone, let alone with the added presence of the other phenomena seen in this extraordinary gemstone - perfect parallel lines and equilateral triangles which are incredibly rare in nature.
These very rare gems are one of Australia's most unique gemstones only found in one location in the entire world. They are very rare and expensive and are highly sought after.
Record Keepers tend not to be pre programmed with information ; rather they work as a key to unlock what is recorded within one's own cellular structure. Each triangle appears as a trigger to activate a specific chain link on the Dna . When working with these stones, it is not unusual for triangles to rise and disappear as aspect's of one's cellular memory are cleared and integrated and new aspects are activated. An alchemical stone bringing a profound connection to light and the regenerative power of the sun during meditation and in everyday life. These Phenomenal gems exhibit moving lines, star, or changes on the surface as the light varied, and was considered to bring good fortune.
With the radiance of the sun and the fire of the solar ray, Sunstone carries the energy of Ra, the sun god, whose energy brings all potential life from within the Earth. It is a Stone of Leadership - of personal power, freedom, and expanded consciousness. Truly reflecting the qualities of Light, it brings openness, benevolence and warmth, strength, mental clarity, and the willingness and ability to bestow blessings upon others.
In ancient India, Sunstone was revered as protection from the destructive forces of other realms.
Sunstone is a gem variety of Oligoclase (Feldspar Family) that has schiller (flash) similar to Labradorite. Sunstone is an orange to brown stone containing small hematite crystals that give it an additional sparkle and fire.
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 and optimism and encouraging motivation and positive action. Sunstone is also useful in removing energy draining ties or “hooks” into your energy by other people.
Sunstone is a great stone for the Base, Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, but can clear and energize all Chakras. Sunstone was used by the Canadian Indians in medicine wheel rituals, by the ancient Greeks to represent the Sun Gods, and in ancient India for protection from dark forces from other realms.
Physically, Sunstone can aid in Depression and SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) as well as assisting with aches, pains, chronic sore throat, and sexual issues.

Working with the Sacral, Third-Eye and Crown Chakras, Moonstone connects us to Divine Inspiration, and channels it into our own intuition. Moonstone encourages introspection and judgment, yielding to easier decision making. Moonstone also enhances one's emotional vision, bringing greater creative abilities and freedom of expression. These properties are also enhanced by Moonstone's ability to open one up to increased synchronicities, that we often cannot see due to our being wrapped up in our daily routines. Moonstone can also offer increased patience and allowing, so those newly found synchronicities can flow into our lives unimpeded.

Moonstone is also known to help with digestive system, including the liver, and can aid in the absorption of essential vitamins and minerals.

Hematite helps to absorb negative energy and calms in times of stress or worry. Hematite is a very protective stone and is great to carry to help you stay grounded in many situations. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to transform negative energies into a more positive vibration. Those in relationships can benefit from the cooperation vibe coming from Hematite.
Hematite can help one to find their own, unique gifts and to release self-imposed limitations, while still maintaining a healthy amount of self-control. Hematite aids in the Ascension process, by facilitating the integration of higher spiritual energies into our physical 3-D existence. This allows those who are doing spiritual work to still be able to function in the physical world and relate to others.
Carry Hematite when in need of balance and equilibrium, or when having difficulty focusing energies. Hematite is also said to be useful in legal situations, and is thought to strengthen self-confidence.
Physically, Hematite is also used to protect against geopathic stress and electromagnetic smog, and is said to be a great detoxifying stone, helpful for the liver and the blood.
