Despite what its name implies, there is no gold in Goldstone; in fact, Goldstone is man-made glass infused with copper particles; the addition chromium results in the deep, shimmery Green 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.
Sparkling Green Goldstone connects with the Heart Chakra and is especially good for emotional healing. The copper contained in Goldstone makes it very effective for physical healing, especially for pain and inflammation. It is a nervous system stimulant and enhances the transmission of healing energies from the hands; therefore it is applicable to long distance healing. Goldstone is a good deflector of unwanted energies, and is highly regarded in the spirit realm as a protection mineral. It is also associated with abundance due to the combination of its gorgeous green color and reflective shimmer.
