Dictionary Terms Explained
- Gentle, uplifting
Legend has it that goldstone was first discovered by alchemists, as they attempted to make gold. Goldstone has a lovely colour and sheen to it and has a very gentle energy. Although subtle, its energy can be uplifting, reminding us of the need to reduce pent-up tension and celebrate the beauty of being alive.
Goldstone (not to be confused with sunstone) is actually a manmade stone. It's created by adding copper salts into a glass furnace. It's thought to have first been made in Italy and is still made there today by members of a monastery.
