  • What is it: Goldstone is a man made colored glass that contains highly reflective materials such as copper oxide (in red/orange gold stone). The reflective inclusions have a bright metallic luster. This exciting appearance has made goldstone a popular man made gem for jewelry.
  • History: The earliest known object made from a goldstone like material is an amulet excavated in Iran and dated back to the 12th or 13th century. The beginning of modern aventurine glass (now commonly known as goldstone) production began in Murano, Italy during the 17th century. A few decades after manufacturing began in Italy, Chinese glassmakers were also producing items made from aventurescent glass. At this time, glass bottles made from goldstone-like glass were given as gifts and rewards by Qing roalty.
