Goldstone is a man-made gemstone mixed with the mineral copper that has been treated, resulting in its “sparkly” appearance (see the qualities for Copper). The sparkles in the stone, resulting from the Copper, represent the “Light” that is channeled by Goldstone. Copper is one of the most powerful conduits for moving and sending energy, making this stone a powerful ally for distance healing. Goldstone is a stone of protection and grounding. It shields the body and energy bodies of negative frequencies, often returning these vibrations to their source. As a grounding Ally, Goldstone helps with our connection to Earth and correction of our vertical alignment. It brings balance to our Chakras and promotes a sense of calm and feeling centered. Goldstone instills confidence and a positive outlook. It motivates and propels one forward, assisting in the achievement of goals and manifestation of new ideas and dreams.
Orange Goldstone assists one to feel really safe in the world. It brings the vitality of Earth into our bodies to recharge, strengthen, and inspire. It assists in activating our lower three chakras to bring about general healing for the physical body.
In healing, it is believed to improve circulation, calm inflammation, increase metabolism, inspire peace, kindness, compassion, and trust, and letting go of one’s need to control outcomes.

Black Onyx is a stone of inner strength, protection, and grounding. It strengthens by inspiring self-discipline and the uprooting of repetitive negative behaviors. It protects by absorbing and transmuting negative energy and repelling invasive frequencies. It is an excellent grounding stone that teaches us, energetically, how to connect with Earth energies so that we receive the benefit of the calm, focus, and balance one experiences that results when we are appropriately connected to the consciousness of Gaia/Earth. Black Onyx can be the catalyst for transformation because of its ability to bring us into greater alignment with higher dimensional frequencies and to crack open the blocks within “mind” to help us perceive inner truth, making it possible to see ourselves as we truly are. It is an amazing guide, teaching “right use of power” as we grow spiritually, and encourages emotional balance, which is key to awakening the deeper consciousness of heart.
In healing, Black Onyx is believed to be useful for strengthening bones, feet, and physical strength, and easing disorders associated with blood, heart, and ears. It may also be beneficial to help with hearing problems, ulcers, glaucoma, and epilepsy.
