Aventurine is a variety of Quartz characterized by bright inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give a shimmering or glistening effect to the stone, referred to as aventurescence, especially notable when tumbled or polished. Its name is derived from the Italian a ventura or all’avventura, meaning “by chance,” and refers to the Italian glass from the 1700s, produced when a worker accidentally dropped metal filings into a vat of melting glass. Once cooled, the result was pleasing with its randomly spaced iridescent sparkles, and it was used to make jewelry and other items. The name Aventurine was later given to the natural stone which looked like the industrial product.

Here’s a basic meditation exercise you can do with green aventurine: Sit holding a piece of green aventurine, or lie down and place a piece of green aventurine over your heart chakra. Visualize the color green entering your body through the crown chakra (top of your head) and slowly moving down until your entire body is enveloped in healing green light. For a few minutes do some deep breathing; breathing in the calming energy of green aventurine and breathing out whatever is upsetting you; i.e. fear, or hurt. Breathe like this until you are feeling calm and energized with positive energy. Open your eyes when you feel ready. You can also visualize the color green entering your body through your feet. Green Aventurine also soothes emotional wounds, allowing one to recognize the issues behind illness or imbalance, depression or defeat, and to facilitate the release of unhealthy relationships, patterns and heartache. It encourages one to view hardships in life as impermanent, as an opportunity for growth in a new direction, and for taking all things in stride. It inspires a feeling of lightness, even humor, which can then stimulate a renewed sense of optimism, joy and hope. It is a reaffirming stone, especially during times of change or upheaval and can be the emotional anchor one needs to remain stable and firmly grounded.
Green Aventurine is a remarkable harmonizer, uniting the intellectual, emotional, physical and auric bodies in bringing one back into a natural rhythm. It dissolves negativity and balances the male/female energies, enabling one to live within one’s own heart. It encourages one to release attachment to outcomes and to be more present in one’s experiences, embracing change, growth and renewal.
