Despite what its name implies, there is no gold in Goldstone; in fact, Goldstone is man-made glass infused with copper particles, which give Red 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.
The sparkles of Red Goldstone are symbolic of the light that can always be found in the darkness. Use Red 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.
Physically, Red Goldstone eases bone/joint pain, increases circulation, balances the metabolism and helps relieve skin irritations caused by food allergies.
