Vintage Gold Gilded Heart Goldstone Pendant Necklace
A delightful vintage goldstone pendant necklace with scrolling heart design motif. The flashing goldstone is set in a gilded gold scrolling frame with hearts surrounding.
Historically known as Aventurine Glass. Trade names for the stone are “Monk’s Stone, Monkgold, Gold Flux as well as Goldstone”. One version of the origination talks about the “recipe” being lost or forgotten until more modern times. Some of these stories evolved into this gem being represented as a mineral that was a natural mineral secretly mined by monks.
