Semi-Precious Stones: Aventurine

Green Aventurine could be one of the luckiest of all crystals. If you are wanting luck in the areas of prosperity and wealth, green aventurine may be one lucky charm source for you.

Where does this lucky stone come from?

Most of the green and blue-green aventurine stones come from the vicinity of Mysore and Chennai in India.

The name aventurine is from the Italian a ventura or all’avventura which means by chance and also refers to the Italian glass from the 1700s. Purely by accident a worker dropped some metal filings into a vat of melting glass. The materials cooled and resulted in a pleasing array of randomly spaced iridescent sparkles then used to make jewelry and other items. Later, the name Aventurine was given to the natural semi-precious stone that looked like the industrial product.

Aventurine Colors

Green is the most common color of the semi-precious stones of aventurine. There are forms in blue, red to reddish-brown, dusty pruple, orange or peach, yellow and silver gray.

Other names for Aventurine

Some uses of Aventurine include (1) jewelry; (2) vases, bowls and figurines; (3) landscaping stone; (4) building stone; (5) aquaria; and (6) monuments.

Supposed effects of green aventurine are: (1) increases overall vitality and enhances intellectual development of children struggling with schoolwork and destructive hyperactivity; (2) assists adults with written work, typing and computer skills; (3) beneficial to all in overcoming clumsiness. (megemont,36) (Eason, 285) (Ahsian, 56).

Wear jewelry made with the semi-precious stone of aventurine and perhaps diminish the effects of domestic strife between spouses. (Megemont,36).
If you are a person looking for love in the mature years of life, wearing green aventurine bead jewelry pieces may be of benefit. It is said green aventurine can be used as a love crystal or added to a Heart Chakra layout because it encourages love later in life (Hall, 361).

Some believe green aventurine stones soothe energy balances and guides one toward inner harmony, calms nervousness, anger and irritation and help dissolve everyday stress of a hectic lifestyle.

Here is one that fits me: releases the notion that every event must be analyzed.(Megemont,36)(Hall,74)(Gienger,17).

I plan on making some dangle earrings using the green aventurine stones and maybe other pieces of jewelry. I will see if it helps me to stop analyzing every event in my life, breaking events into small pieces and looking at each small piece extensively.
