Aventurine is a variety of Quartz characterized by bright inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give a shimmering or glistening effect to the stone. This effect is called aventurescence and is especially notable when tumbled or polished. Its name is derived from the Italian a ventura or all’avventura, meaning “by chance,” . It refers to the Italian glass from the 1700s, produced when a worker accidentally dropped metal filings into a vat of melting glass. Once cooled, the result was nice with its randomly spaced iridescent sparkles. So it was used to make jewelry and other items. The name Aventurine was later given to the natural stone which looked like the industrial product.
Green Aventurine is known as the “Stone of Opportunity,”/ It is thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth, or for increasing favor in competitions or games of chance. Its winning energy makes it a great ally for boosting one’s chances in any situation – a first date, tax audit, even landing a promotion. Aventurine has been used as a lucky talisman and is a popular stone for gamblers.
Red Aventurine is stone of manifestation through action. It draws upon the elements of Earth and Fire to increase the flow of prana, or life force, in re-vitalizing the physical body and focusing its energy to get things done. It boosts vitality and mental alertness, and amplifies the desire to take on life’s challenges with determination and perseverance. It inspires creativity and sexuality, and renews excitement and confidence in bringing one’s projects, goals and desires into reality.
