Goldstone Glitter

Goldstone is one of those materials that can added to glass for some extra sparkle. It consists of copper filings suspended in clear glass. If worked too hot in a direct flame it will appear to be rust colored or brownish instead of sparkly gold. I've been very pleased with the goldstone I've been using. I heat chunks of it in the flame, case it in clear that is the proper COE for the glass I want to use it with, and pull it out into stringer. I just love the glittery results!
