What is Goldstone?

Goldstone is a man-made crystal made of synthetic glass and sparkles from copper. It’s available in many colors and shows the aventurescence that Goldstone is often mistaken for as Sunstone. 

It’s made by melting silica with copper or other oxides and cooling it slowly to disperse copper flecks evenly in the stone, creating a metallic luster. The reflective inclusions may be small or big based on the cooling pace. 

Did you know Goldstone was called Aventurine Glass for most of history? 

The name is linked to its optical illusion of aventurescence, commonly called Glittering Glass and Gold Star Glass. It may be called Starry Night or Stellaria for its resemblance to the night sky. Goldfluss and Goldstein are their German names.

Glittering Glass is believed to be made by Venetian monks from the Monastery of San Pietro or Miotti Clan in the Middle Ages when they were making gold, also making this crystal known as Monk’s Gold or Monksgold. 

The legend says the Venetian State heads commissioned Vincenzo Miotti to make Aventurine Glass. Although the monks tried to keep their Goldstone recipe a secret, it was mainstreamed by Pietro Bigaglia in the 18th century. 

That said, there are earlier accounts of Goldstone relics dating back to the 12th and 13th centuries in Iran. 

Today, most of the world’s Goldstone comes from China and Italy, but it’s widely available and used in jewelry, accessories, fashion, and spirituality

Goldstone is generally seen in blue, indigo, or black colors with white or gold specks. It’s associated with the Root, Solar Plexus, Third Eye, and Solar Star Chakras and brings safety, health, intuition, creativity, passion, growth, and luck.
