  • 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.
