Goldstone is a man-made glass that has copper flecks suspended in it. This gives the stone the illusion of sparkle.
Goldstone is usually made up of Gypsum and Feldspar and often comes in a reddish-brown color. But there are Goldstones that are also colored blue and green.
It is said that Medieval monks in Italy accidentally discovered the process for making Goldstone when attempting to forge the alchemist’s legendary philosopher’s stone.
In the process, copper shavings were accidentally knocked over into a pot of molten glass, creating the first Goldstone.
The Meaning Of Goldstone
As a beautifully constructed form of glass, Goldstone represents the power and fire of ingenuity. While not coming naturally from the ground, Goldstone has a wonderfully magical history and spiritual meaning.
Goldstone’s meaning is that of a stone of inspiration, and even a warrior stone, for its ability to transmute lofty ideas into physical manifestations of power.
While coming in many colors, it’s most popular, and common variations are orange, reddish, and of course, gold. Flecks of iron glimmer underneath its shiny exterior and make a truly stunning appearance.
The colors of orange, red, and gold all relate to the summer months where the sun is the highest in the sky, and the days are at their longest. Perhaps harkening back to its home of Italy, Goldstone provides a sense of rich warmth, the feeling of long beautiful sunsets dancing on brick walls, and fiery passions.
As a stone that holds the power of the fire in its core, it stands for change, transformation, alchemy, and strength.
