This one-of-a-kind healing gemstone pendant was designed by jeweler Darlene Soyka and is composed of goldstone and wrapped in 14K rolled gold. All of Darlene’s jewelry is unique and carries the healing qualities naturally imbued in the gemstone she has selected. The 15-inch 1mm rope chain included with the pendant is also made of 14K gold-filled metal, but it can be switched out for a chain of your choice.
Goldstone is a man-made stone, just a type of glass with glittery metallic material in it. Its colors include blue, green or reddish brown with tiny coppery glitter. It is a valid classification, as it has many properties of natural glasses such as obsidian that are modified by its being man-made and having been doped with additives.
Goldstone has been around since the European Renaissance. Early monks working at a glass factory near Venice, Italy, were practicing alchemy when molten copper accidentally tipped into a molten glass container. This crystallized into thousands of tiny crystals and formed a melt with golden light sparkles. This is how the first goldstone came about. Though it is not technically a gemstone, it is often referred to as one.
Some of the spiritual, healing properties of goldstone include:
- Emotional stability, serenity, calm.
- Deflection of unwanted energies.
- Use during prayer or mediation for long-distance healing.
- Establishment and manifestation of lofty goals.
- Increase of blood flow and reduction of inflammation.
This powerful pendant would make an ideal gift for a loved one in need of its healing properties, or consider purchasing it for your own well-being.
