Collection: Green Aventurine

Green Aventurine is a type of quartz that contains small inclusions of various minerals, which give it its shimmering or glistening effect, known as aventurescence. Its name is derived from the Italian word "avventura", meaning "by chance", referring to the accidental discovery of aventurescence.

Aventurine has been used for centuries for various purposes. It was highly valued by ancient Tibetan monks, who included it in their statues' eyes to symbolically increase their statues' visionary powers. In ancient cultures, it was also used as a talisman to provide protection and good luck.

In the metaphysical world, green aventurine is known as the "Stone of Opportunity," thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth. It's also believed to enhance creativity, confidence, and motivation. Moreover, it's used for healing purposes, especially for issues related to the heart, lungs, and adrenal glands. It's important to note, though, that these uses aren't scientifically proven and belong to belief systems and alternative practices.
