Goldstone, also called monk's gold, is crafted from glass and elements such as copper and cobalt, with the same recipe that was used in Venice during the late Renaissance. Brown and blue goldstone beads are the most common forms of goldstone beads, but lately, green goldstone beads have gained in popularity. Goldstone is prized for its sparkling attributes — in fact, the glittering metals in blue goldstone remind some people of twinkling stars in the night sky.
