I Can all the Quarks be found in the Sun?

    so, I was told that only Up and Down are stable Quarks in the nucleus, and the others are only explained by observations in particular decay.

    You pretty much just have normal matter (nuclei of hydrogen, helium, some amounts of heavier elements, electrons, and neutrinos) in the Sun. It doesn't get hot or dense enough to produce strange matter (matter containing strange quarks) or heavier quarks. There might be some strange matter in neutron stars.
