Goldstone is a manmade mineral composed of glittering silica. It can be carved and shaped into beads, figurines, cabochon jewelry, and other decorative art. Folklore suggests Goldstone was accidentally discovered by a group of monks trying to discover the secrets of alchemy. A more documented origin comes from the Miotti family, who invented and were granted an exclusive license to make it by the Doge of Venice. Despite Goldstone being artificial, it is an especially powerful stone of inspiration and ingenuity. It is to be kept near when embarking on new adventures of the physical, mental, or spiritual. It is a stone that can ground the user and help build foundations to grow from. Wear Goldstone on the person, and keep it in areas of personal expansion such as the schoolroom, office, or mode of transportation.
