Information Card Included

   Goldstone is valued for its beautiful, shimmering sparkles and is used to make beads, cabachons and other shapes for jewelry. Although its name implies that it contains gold, this gemstone does not contain a speck of gold. 
   Goldstone is not a naturally occurring gemstone It was discovered by accident in the early 1800s when a monk in an Italian monastery was making glass in a hot furnace, and spilled a vial of copper filings into the molten glass.
   The method for making goldstone is a trade secret, handed down through generations. Because of its scarcity and beauty, it is always in high demand. 
   Goldstone also exists in other color variants based on other elements. Cobalt or manganese can be substituted for copper; the resulting crystals have a more silvery appearance and are suspended in a strongly-colored matrix of the corresponding ionic color, resulting in blue goldstone or purple goldstone respectively.
