Majorly mistaken as a mineral, the Goldstone has bizarre folklore behind its creation. It is a form of glass which was produced long ago as a result of an accident by some monk. It is said that an alchemist monk during his experiments mistakenly poured copper shavings into the molten glass. The result was a hard, glossy element which was named as monk’s stone, monk gold or goldstone. In the ancient Italian times, it was also known as Aventurine glass which means accidental, by luck or by chance.
Another story which reveals the secret behind the creation of goldstone dates back to the seventeenth century where a Miotti family of Venice dealing into glasses, perfected the technique of creating a special kind of glass known as Goldstone. They kept the recipe of it a secret until another glass maker named Pietro Bigaglia bought it in the open in the nineteenth century. Today, this sparkling crystal is used with various other stones to make healing bracelets and necklaces. The small beads of it look stunning when polished to create beautiful jewelry items.
