After seeing one Blue Goldstone ltd gemstone sell for $400US & another one for as high, I think this would be a strong seller for Trollbeads. Do you all agree? I know I would buy a few, but definately not at inflated prices.

I would love to see one in production! I would love to find one, but I would never pay a crazy price for one.

I am not sure - I think they don't look "real" (which apparently they are not, they are man-made I think??) - I would like to see one IRL before I decide.

Its quite possible that they are manmade but ARE They? Can someone find this out for me please, before I invest in them? I have various non tb stones that are man made, they were sold to me as manmade and as such I think they were very nice at the price I paid for them. but any stone, if its man made or colour treated I would be happier if I knew before hand not find out after I buy it.

So can anyone find out if its man made, As Amanda's post is implying?

Goldstone Gemstone meaning
Goldstone is a man made gemstone that has been around since the European Rennaissance.

Early monks working at a glass factory near Venice, Italy were practicing alchemy when molten copper accidentally tipped into a molten glass container.

This crystallized into thousands of tiny crystals and formed a melt with golden light sparkles. This is how the first goldstone came about. Though it is not technically a gemstone, it is often referred to as one.

Red goldstone is associated with vitality and energy. Blue Goldstone is associated with learning and communication.
Goldstone is an energy stone.

from www.crystal-cure.com

that confirmed what amanda said, Oh my god, its man made and some one paid $400 for it? I'm appallled..

wiki wrote:Goldstone is a type of glittering glass made in a low-oxygen reducing atmosphere. The finished product can take a smooth polish and be carved into beads, figurines, or other artifacts suitable for semiprecious stone, and in fact goldstone is often mistaken for or misrepresented as a natural material. Another common name for the material is aventurine glass.

I love the glitter, but I found it hard to combine, so I sld them to other trollies. Also it's very strange to find glass on a gemstone set....
I voted NO, btw Wink

I have voted yes but they have made me look elsewhere now and I feel that I may start looking elsewhere alot of the time if beads are too difficult to get hold of and too expensive!

Manmade or not, I think they look fabulous! Price should reflect that it's manmade though.

Just to put it out there - all the glass beads are man made, and people pay a lot for those (old earth anyone? Wink )

However I do think that the people who have paid a lot for the blue goldstones would really not want them to go into regular production... pale

Also, although man made, goldstone is widely used in 'gemstone' jewellery, so I can see why it was included in a gemstone kit. That's not to say I agree with it in principle though Evil or Very Mad

Oh and I voted yes to having both goldstones in the regular production. If people really do love them so much then why not?!

After going back and forth, I voted yes. On principle I feel that limited editions should be just that, limited. But, given the variety of things that were in the gemstone kits Trollbeads would be eliminating a lot of future choices if they were to never make any of those things available again. Clearly it is popular and my guess is that they could use a different size or shape or whatever to make it different. I think it is important that it is indicated that it is man made and glass.

I think they are very pretty if they sold for the same price as the other gemstones. Manmade doesn't bother me if I like it, but the price?? THAT bother me !!!!!!

I voted yes on both. Limited is one thing, but to just allow them to be available in one or 2 places, IMHO, only allows more to be sold on Ebay for extravagant prices. I really like how they are doing the WT beads!! We all have a chance to get them and a little time also. Heck, I did not pay as much for my Old Earth, Red Dillo, or Crane...I sure would not pay $400 plus for the blue goldstone.

I would love to have them in the line and voted YES! I am hoping the beads will at least come to the US so maybe I can find a few of the ones I liked the best. I think this bead could be hard to combine, but all the more reason to have it available. Then, I can buy two or three and have no problem! Very Happy

How about we just vote that they should send a few to their biggest fans - US!

I agree with Trolldog....we should all have the chance to buy not just in one or 2 countries.....the world tour ...well we can all manage to find a dealer.....but with the gemstones...well too hard.....btw voted yes.

I am not craving one but voted yes so that a guaranteed supply of them would stop the runaway prices on eBay. Just wondering if having a nearly impossible to find goldstone at $400 gives more pleasure than one available for the regular gemstone price.

Hmmmm --- Am I only the only one that is tired of reading about the Blue Goldstone?!?!

Fool

I think the LE Gemstone release also had lots of other beautiful stone beads that aren't getting near the amount of credit that is due.

I have a blue goldstone that I purchased for only a few $$ more than the production gemstones. If I didn't have one I would probably lust after one, but would never pay ebay prices. It is a gorgeous bead that could easily pass for a larger faceted black onyx until the sun hits it.
