Feel the river’s lull in this green malachite, blue goldstone and cream colored riverstone necklace.
This is a nicely balanced necklace, both artistically and metaphysically. Green malachite is known as a strong stone balanced between the properties of earth and water. It is further balanced in this necklace by blue goldstone — which although it is manufactured — is known as a stone of ambition. The color blue is connected to the element of air, balancing the earthy green malachite and fire of the metallic flecks within the goldstone. It is all nicely set off by beads of tumbled riverstone.
Goldstone is also known monkstone or monk’s gold, referring to the urban legend that goldstone was created accidentally by Italian monks in the 1600s. However, archaeologists found a sample of a goldstone talisman in Iran dating to the 1100s.
