Goldstone has been shaped into a heart and highly polished to show off its beauty. Puffy hearts make thoughtful gifts as wedding favours, valentines gifts, mother's day presents or just because.

Goldstone is manmade glass with flecks of copper suspended in it. The invention of the original goldstone occurred by accident in seventeenth-century Venice by the Miotti family. The glass is made in a reducing furnace with copper salts added, this smelts the copper salts back to copper, which then crystallizes.

Goldstone is known as the stone of ambition, drive. The metaphysical properties of copper are said to be the ability to aid the circulatory system, help strengthen bones and fight arthritis pain.

The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral and in the past, the intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul and stylized depictions of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love.
