More About Goldstone
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.
More About the Symbolism of the Colour Blue
Colours can affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states, both consciously and unconsciously. We can use colours to help us feel better, to inject an element of vitality into our life, or to calm strong feelings and promote a sense of peace and relaxation.
The colour blue is typically associated with a range of emotions and states of being including: calmness, purity, truth, wisdom, depression and peace. Different people perceive colours in different ways, so you may have other associations, which are equally valid.
In Buddhism blue is linked to wisdom, and in Hebrew traditions it's associated with mercy. Both Christ, and the Virgin Mary, have both been depicted wearing shades of blue, representing their detachment from worldly goods, materialism and possessions. Blue is the colour of the sky and as such is associated with a sense of peace, freedom and calmness.
The ancient Egyptians regarded blue as being the colour of truth, and the images painted on the walls of their tombs were on a sky-blue background. It's also a colour that's been linked to scores of gods, particularly sky gods, such as the Egyptian Amun, the Greek Zeus, Roman Jupiter, the Hindu Indra, Vishnu and his incarnation, Krishna (who was said to have blue skin).
When people are feeling low in spirits or depressed they're often said to be, "feeling blue." It's thought this phrase may stem from the twilight blues songs sung by African slaves whilst being held captive in North America.
