About Goldstone

Goldstone is an artificial coloured glass that contains abundant, flat-faced, highly reflective inclusions. The reflective inclusions have a bright metallic lustre, and their glittering appearance immediately attracts attention. This exciting appearance has made goldstone a popular man-made gem and sculptural material.

Goldstone was developed by Vincenzo Miotti, a member of a prominent family of Venetian glassmakers, in the late 17th century. Keeping with the tradition of the medieval craft-guild, the formulation was maintained a closely guarded secret. It was not until the early 19th century, after the family had stopped making glass, that it was divulged by one of the surviving members of the family.
