Goldstone, also known as “Aventurine Glass”, “Monkstone”, or “Monk’s Gold” is a man-made crystal composed of glass and copper or other metallic components to make a variety of colors including gold, purple, blue and green. There are several folk legends about its creation, either that it was accidentally invented by Italian monks in the 1600s, or was a product of alchemy. However, the earliest occurrence of Goldstone seems to be in 12th or 13th century Persia based on an Amulet that was found.
Brown Goldstone is believed to be a great tool for ambition, with the ability to enhance drive, ingenuity, and focus. This crystal can be helpful with goal-setting and follow-through, relieving tension and encouraging positive thought. Due to Goldstone’s copper content, it is believed to be revitalizing, as well as protective, with the ability to shield the wearer from negative energy.
Brown Goldstone is associated with the Root Chakra, which governs foundations.
