The earliest known object made from a goldstone-like material is an amulet excavated in Iran and dated to be from the 12th to early 13th century. [1] The beginning of modern aventurine glass production began in Murano, Italy during the 17th century.

Reddish-brown goldstone is the most common form containing tiny crystals of glittering metallic copper. ... The technical term for this glittering effect is "aventurescence." This makes goldstone one of the few manufactured materials which get its name from similar natural stones.

Legend has it that an unknown religious order of Italian monks accidentally spilled copper shavings into a vat of melted glass, while others have the same monks trying to make gold and coming up with goldstone instead… busy monks.
