Aventurine Stone

The name aventurine derives from the Italian "a Ventura" meaning "by chance." Aventurine is also referred to as Adventurine, Avanturine, Aventurine Quartz, and Indian Jade. It is used not only in various forms for metaphysical purposes but in jewelry, vases, bowls, and figurines, as well. Aventurine is a form of quartz, characterized by its translucency and the presence of platy mineral inclusions that give a shimmering or glistening effect termed Aventurescence. The inclusions can also impart a distinct, and often beautiful, color to the material. Aventurine is most often green but also occurs in orange, yellow, red, pink, brown, white, gray, and blue.
