Goldstone

View our range of beautifully handcrafted goldstone gemstone jewellery.


Goldstone is a type of glass with tiny copper dots visible throughout the stone. A special process is needed to create the stone's metallic gleam; copper salts are added to colored liquid glass. The mass of glass is held at a specific temperature for a length of time, and then allowed to cool. As the glass cools, the salts turn into copper crystals, creating that unique sparkle.Goldstone reportedly originated with Italian monks trying to make gold out of other materials (alchemy). The secret was kept for years until the Chinese, it is said, discovered how to make the gemstone. Because of its origins in the monastery, goldstone is used frequently in religious jewelry.
