Red Goldstone Heart (Singles)Red Goldstone Heart (Singles)
These sparkling Red Goldstone hearts are a perfect gift to bring positive and joyful energy to anyone's life. I've always liked goldstone; it’s not really gold, and it’s not really a stone, but it sure is pretty! So, if goldstone isn’t really gold or stone… what exactly is it? Well, the short version is that goldstone is glass with copper flecks suspended in it, but since I’m not really the short version sort of person… we’ll go with a longer explanation. Goldstone is made by melting silica (sand), copper oxide, borax, and other chemicals that reduce the copper to its elemental form. When the glass is liquid, the vat is sealed off and all air is cut off from it. This is called an “oxygen reducing atmosphere” which keeps the glass hot enough for the metallic flecks to form, but not melt.
*As each piece is unique and one of a kind, please allow for variations in size, shape, and color of the stone that you receive.
