Gemology

100 0715
  • Goldstone, also known as aventurine glass, is artificial glass.
    • Generally, goldstone has a chemical composition of (SiO2 with Cu), an amorphous crystal system, and a hardness of 6 - 7.
  • The glass is filled with cuprous oxide which reduces to metallic copper during later annealing, resulting in aventurescence.
  • Depending on the color, additional metals are added.
    • For blue goldstone, that metal is cobalt.
  • Goldstone is a common imitation of aventurine and sunstone.
    • Blue goldstone is sometimes used as an imitation for lapis lazuli.
  • It's often confused with Sandstone, sometimes being called Gold Sandstone.
  • Goldstone is rich in lore. It involves a few stories detailing its origin and creation.
    • One story involves Italian monks who had accidentally discovered the glass by dropping copper shavings into a batch of molten glass.
      • A similar story claims it was created by alchemists attempting to create gold.
      • The more well known version of this story involves a 13th century legendary glass maker named Christoforo Briani.
    • The more likely creation of goldstone involves a 17th century glass maker named Vincenzo Miotti. His family created and sold these stones, keeping the formula a secret. It wasn't until the 19th century where French chemists discovered a replica formulation.
      • The recipe was created by Theophilus Jules Pelouze, who released it to the public.
  • Goldstone's name may have originated from alchemists making gold.
    • There are also names like "monk’s gold" or “monkstone” that also came from folklore origins.
    • Its alternate name, aventurine glass, comes from the Italian word avventura meaning “by chance”. This may also have ties with the stone's folklore.
    • Another name comes from Persia: stellaria,“ "sang-e setareh” or “sang-e khorshid”, where sang means ‘stone’, 'khorshid’ means 'sun’ and setareh means 'star’ in Persian.
  • Metaphysically, goldstones are stones of ambition. They help one achieve their goals. Goldstone may be used as an energy generator, deflecting unwanted energy and provide long distance healing. It is widely regarded as a protection stone as well.
    • Blue goldstone represents learning and communication. It's effective in transmission of certain energies.
    • Because it looks similar to the night sky, blue goldstone is sometimes called a wishing stone.
