Aventurine gemstones are essentially translucent quartz with mineral intrusions that give it a glistening sheen; this unique quality is called aventurescence. The most common color is green, but it also comes in orange, brown, yellow, blue, and brown. The name derives from the Italian word ‘a vetura’ meaning ‘by chance’ or to be fortunate or lucky.
The eye-catching, shimmery quality of Aventurine gemstones and the beautiful array of colors and shapes are more than enough reasons to choose a wide variety of these gemstones to have in your bead collection or to use in a beading project.
Aventurine is a gemstone that increases opportunity, luck, and abundance.
