Aventurine (sometimes called Green Quartz) is a crystal for healthy new growth. This stone attracts luck, abundance and success. It promotes both physical and spiritual maturation by balancing one’s masculine and feminine energies. This stone also amplifies leadership qualities and provides courage through love. Using aventurine can help removes hurts of the heart and open its carrier to new possibilities.
Throughout history, many cultures have considered aventurine to be a good luck stone, especially for travelers.
One story from the 1700s states that aventurine derived its name from the Italian word all’avventura, meaning “adventure”.
Legends state that aventurine holds a strong connection to the Devic Realm, opening the doors for spiritual communication.
This gemstone is a green or blue variety of quartz. It is differentiated by its shimmering inclusions, which can give it a glitter effect called “aventurescence”. It is most commonly green, though blue and orange varieties have been found. Aventurine can be found worldwide, with different colors appearing across the world.
Aventurine has a strong resonance with the heart chakra.
You can place aventurine in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
Aventurine has been connected with many Zodiac signs, but it is primarily associated with Taurus and Libra.
Folklore states that aventurine is believed to aid the thymus and muscular tissues. It may also support the circulatory and nervous systems, providing them relief from ailments. Useful for energetic stability during cancer treatments and pregnancy.
