Goldstone is a man-made glass with sparkling materials suspended within it. It is sometimes called aventurine glass, although it is not related to the naturally occurring quartz crystal called aventurine. Natural aventurine also sparkles from inclusions of mica, so there is a superficial resemblance. Goldstone comes in an reddish-orange hue with the sparkles coming from copper, and blue with the sparkles coming from cobalt or manganese.
Does goldstone have crystal healing properties?
As you might expect, opinions vary on this and you will sometimes see metaphysical properties listed for goldstone. On this site, we do not list it as a crystal and do not treat it as such as it is man-made. We think it would be like treating your windows or a glass from your kitchen as a metaphysical object. We believe the healing properties of crystals derive from their creation in the Earth by natural processes. In essence, we believe crystal healing is about helping your body-mind rediscover a healthy pattern based on nature.
However, crystal healing is an intuitive process, not a scientific one. If your experience differs, please do what is right for you.
