Despite what its name implies, there is no gold in Goldstone; in fact, Goldstone is man-made glass infused with copper particles, which give Goldstone its shimmery appearance (infusions of cobalt result in Blue Goldstone). It was invented by the Miotti family in Venice during the seventeenth century. And, because glass is made from quartz sand (silica), Goldstone has found its way into the healing community.
Goldstone is said to be the stone of ambition. It builds energy, courage and a positive attitude. Increases drive and confidence. A gently uplifting stone, Goldstone promotes vitality.
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.
The sparkles of Goldstone are symbolic of the light that can always be found in the darkness. Use Goldstone when you feel lost, either literally or emotionally. Goldstone, like diamond, is a good deflector of unwanted energies, and is highly regarded in the spirit realm as a protection mineral. It is a nervous system stimulant and enhances transmission of healing energies from the hands; therefore it is applicable to long distance healing.
