A deposit of calcium-rich plagioclase phenocrysts hosted in basalt flows, officially designated as the Oregon Sunstone Public Collection Area.

The only facilities available at the site are a vault toilet, picnic tables, and a shade structure. Public camping is allowed anywhere within the Sunstone Collection Area. There is no fee for collecting sunstones, but you may not collect for trade or commercial purposes.
