Ancient Greeks dedicated sunstone to their sun-god Helios, partly because it was believed to be a bit of the sun on earth and partly because of its association with the legendary phoenix: a bird that appears at the first sunrise every five-hundred years and is said to become flame then rise reborn from its ashes. Greeks also believed that sunstone protected the earth from diaster and kept the sun on its right course.

Sunstone promotes its wearer self-healing powers. It stimulates the nervous system and ensures the harmonious functioning of all organs. In addtion, it alleviates symptoms of exhaustion and has an invigorating effect of the heart, back, eyes, and kidneys. Sunstone promotes good humor and cheerfulness, provides stamina, and gives its wearer self confidence.

Astrologically, sunstone is associated with Leo and Gemini.
