In the Pokémon Adventures manga

In The Delivery of Rotom and the Girl, Sun received a Sparkling Stone from Tapu Koko. In The Party Crasher and Guzma the Destroyer, Sun used the Sparkling Stone as a splint for his broken arm. When angered by Gladion in The Final Match and a Surprising Finale!, Sun accidentally used the Z-Move Inferno Overdrive with his Litten, Dollar, defeating Gladion's Type: Null. Due to the strain of using the attack, Sun immediately passed out from exhaustion. Hala took the Sparkling Stone in order to convert it into a Z-Ring for Sun to use. Once completed, Hala had Kahili deliver it to Sun at the Ruins of Life.

In PASM12, Kiawe is revealed to own a Z-Ring, which he received as a Sparkling Stone from Tapu Lele five years prior to the Sun & Moon chapter. In order to prevent Sun from using Inferno Overdrive against him again, Gladion had his Type: Null shatter Kiawe's Z-Ring when the latter attempted to lend it to Sun, leaving only the Sparkling Stone intact.

Later, Hapu received a Sparkling Stone from Tapu Fini after it accepted her as the next Kahuna of Poni Island.
