Red Goldstone, also known as Starstone, is a Healing Crystal that is associated with the root chakra. Harnessing the properties of copper, Goldstone has the effect of boosting life-force and promoting vitality. When carried, it aids in increasing the strength of circulation in the body, ensuring bone density, and will help relieve joint pains such as rheumatism and arthritis as well as reducing stomach pains or grumbling experienced from anxiety.
Goldstone is a man-made stone made from coloured glass that has had flakes of copper added to it to create a beautiful glittery effect. This effect is said to resemble the stars at night which helps us connect to our dreams. Placed under your pillow it helps with sleep and promotes intuition. These stones can also produce asterisms when light is reflected from the internal flakes.
Asterism refers to a star effect. The star is similar to a cat’s eye. The effect is caused by light reflecting off internal, silk-like inclusions. However, in a star stone, the inclusions are crossed rather than straight. Corundum and quartz crystalize in the hexagonal system and develop six-rayed stars. Garnet and diopside have four-rayed stars. You’ll rarely find star quartz in jewelry. The star is faint and most often seen in spheres. Even then, good lighting is required to see the star clearly.SIMILAR TO SEEN: The image shows an example of the single specimen you will receive.
