Goldstone

One of a kind

Goldstone is a type of glittering glass made in a low-oxygen reducing atmosphere. The finished product can take a smooth polish and be carved into beads, figurines, or other artifacts suitable for semiprecious stone. The most common form of goldstone is reddish-brown, containing tiny crystals of metallic copper that require special conditions to form properly.

History, mythology & legends

According to legend, there are a few stories about alchemist monks attempting to make gold. In the process, either a monk or a general worker accidentally knocked some copper shavings into a pot of molten glass. Goldstone is often mistaken for or misrepresented as a natural material.

Traditional & emotional healing

Goldstone will boost the glow of one’s life force, strengthening the inner self.  With the properties of Copper as well, it is extremely helpful in increasing the strength of circulatory system, which in turn bolsters the bones, easing arthritic pain and reducing inflammation. Due to its language linage coming from the Italian ‘avventura’ meaning “by luck, risk or chance” which is also translated as “by fortune”, Goldstone is associated with good luck.
