Ancient Gemstones – Goldstone

August 5, 2014

Blue Goldstone Necklace, Br... Product ImageThis gorgeous gemstone might not be so ancient but it surely has a nice story and it’s worth our attention just like the other gemstones. Goldstone is a man made stone which has been around since the European Rennaissance, a type of glittering glass made in a low-oxygen reducing atmosphere. The story behind the origin of the goldstone is not certain and more folklore stories exist. One of them states that goldstone was created by alchemists. One of the many problems that alchemists tried to solve was how to turn iron into gold. Goldstone is thought to be the result of one of these attempts.

The blue goldstone is know as the “stone of ambition” while the red goldstone is known as “the generator stone”.

Goldstone  is said to help attain one’s goals. Goldstone is also said to help one stay calm and stabilize the emotions. It can be used as an energy generator and can deflect unwanted energies, making it used as a protection stone. It is also used for long distance healing and revitalizing one’s energy field. Goldstone also has many of the metaphysical properties of copper, including in crystal healing lore the strengthening of the circulatory system, strengthening bones, and easing arthritis pain.

As you can see this man made stone is actually a special stone! I love its starry sky night look and I like working with it!
