  • Green Aventurine:
    • What is it: Aventurine is a gemstone variety of quartz prized for it's translucency and sparkly metallic inclusions. These inclusions are typically composed of muscovite mica, which usually results in medium to dark green aventurine stones with a silvery green or blue sheen (but come in a wide range of colors). The metallic inclusions give aventurine a unique sparkling iridescent effect, known as 'aventurescence'. 
    • History: The name for Aventurine came from an accidental discovery made by Venetian glass workers during the 18th century. The name "aventurine" was derived from the Italian words "a ventura", which mean "by chance". Goldstone was accidentally made when copper filings spilled into a batch of glass during production. This was the begining of goldstone (artificial aventurine). The name “aventurine” was later given to the natural stone as it resembled this glass. 
    • Metaphysical Properties: Aventurine is believed to benefit the thymus gland and nervous system. Considered to balance blood pressure and stimulate the metabolism, lowering cholesterol.

  • Lapis:

    • History: The first known mining for lapis occurred in the Badakhshan Province of northeastern Afghanistan as early as 7000 BC. The lapis was used to make beads, small jewelry items, and small sculptures. These have been found at Neolithic archaeological sites dating back to about 3000 BC in Iraq, Pakistan, and Afghanistan. Around this time, Lapis lazuli was greatly admired and valued higher than gold. When grounded to a fine powder and added to paint, it created the color Ultramarine Blue,which was used in some of the most beautiful and famous paintings in history.

  • Amethyst:
    • What is it: Amethyst is a purple variety of quartz (SiO2) where the violet color is caused by irradiation or impurities of iron which result in complex crystal lattice substitutions.
    • History: The name comes from the Koine Greek ἀμέθυστος amethystos from ἀ- a-, "not" and μεθύσκω methysko / μεθύω methyo, "intoxicate", a reference to the belief that the stone protected its owner from drunkenness. The ancient Greeks wore amethyst and carved drinking vessels from it in the belief that it would prevent intoxication. In Greek mythology, amethyst was rock crystal dyed purple by the tears of Dionysus, the god of wine and revelry. Ancient Egyptians used the stone as the representative of the zodiac sign of the goat.
    • Metaphysical Properties: Amethyst is believed to be a very powerful and protective crystal, and is a first choice of many metaphysicians. Used in acient times to recover from both physical addictions as well as addictive relationships, it became known as the “Stone of Sobriety”. A natural stress reliever, Amethyst is said to encourage inner strength.
