Goldstone has been called the stone of ambition and drive, and as such is said to help attain one's goals. Goldstone is also said to help one stay calm and stabilize emotions. It can be used as an energy generator and can deflect unwanted energies, making it used as a protection stone. It is also used for long-distance healing and revitalizing one's energy field. Goldstone is actually a man-made glass with flecks of copper suspended in it, which give it sparkles.

Why Choose Carved Stones?
Whenever you choose to paint an item, most instructions, if not all of them, say you must prepare the area. When you paint a wall, a car, or a home you must sand the surface to bring it to a rough state. This is for the paint to absorb into the area and adhere to the item properly. A mineral that is just painted or etched wears away with minimal use. To engrave the stone, however, makes a deeper groove that holds and grasps the paint or leafing, making its longevity washable and durable. Having your items carved, not only safeguards your valuable magick tools but also sets the symbols deep inside the crystals, embedding the symbol for eternity.
