Goldstone is a type of glass made with copper or copper salts in presence of reduced flame. Under normal oxidative conditions, copper ions meld into the silica to produce transparent bluish-green glass. When the reduced goldstone melt cools the copper remains in atomic isolation and precipitates into small crystalline clusters. The finished product can take a smooth polish and be carved into beads, figurines, or artifacts suitable for semiprecious stone.
The most common form of goldstone gives the illusion of being reddish-brown although the color comes from the copper crystals and the glass itself is colorless.
Because goldstone is saturated with copper many find great healing properties in its use. Goldstone is said to bring new meaning to life that becomes alert, aware, loving, and caring for all who enter our circle. It allows us to understand, rest, sleep and contemplation are as necessary as food for our well-being. With goldstone we are free from the rapid flow of a churning river and soar in our spirit to new heights.
