The Goldstone Legend
Gold Stone is not really a stone and the mystery behind how it was created still exists today. One story is that during the 1800s and Italian Monk was making glass at a monastery, he accidentally spilled copper fillings into his molten glass, and the result was glass with sparkling flecks. The recipe for making gold stone was supposedly kept a secret by the monks and passed down over time.
An alternative story says gold stone also was born in Italy. Its creation was said to be born in a factory in Murano where some molten copper was accidentally spilled into the molten glass and the accident resulted in the beautiful beads and art glass we still love today.
