Aventurine | Silver Street Jewellers


Posted by Laura Greenshields on


Aventurine is a type of quartz characterized by its translucency, and the presence of mineral inclusions which give off a shimmering or glistening effect called aventurescence. The most prevalent color of aventurine is green which comes from Fushite particles found inside of the Quartz. The bulk of green and blue-green aventurine derives from India.


The word aventurine comes from the Italian "a ventura" meaning "by chance." One myth runs that this kind of glass was initially produced inadvertently in Venice by a glassmith, who let some copper flakes fall into the liquid “metal,” from which the new substance was called avventurino.  The natural stone was later renamed Aventurine owing to how similar it appears to the processed product.

Healing properties

 Green Aventurine is said to be the luckiest of all crystals, particularly with the gaining of happiness and riches, or with manipulating the probabilities of success in games and competitions. Green Aventurine helps remove old disappointments after which new success can occur. Green Aventurine is a healthy stone and excellent for protecting the heart and promoting healing from surgery and sickness.
