About Green Aventurine
Green Aventurine is a form of quartz dotted with Fuchsite that gives it a green colour and a shimmering effect called aventurescence.
Its name is derived from the Italian word “a ventura” meaning “by chance”. This name originally came about when an Italian glass worker accidentally dropped metal filings into a vat of glass. This name was eventually transferred to the natural stone that bears a resemblance to this industrial product that was created by chance.
This association is also related to Green Aventurine’s reputation as a stone of good luck. Green Aventurine has long been a go to for those seeking good fortune – in a bet, or even a job interview or risky situation - giving further meaning to the name “by chance”.
Psychological Healing Properties
Do you experience an unsettled mind or anxious and repetitive thoughts? Do you struggle to focus, or find yourself quick to anger?
In modern times, the human body is subjected to a multitude of inflammatory substances on a daily basis. We are often disconnected from the forces of nature that could protect us from these poisons, which can lead to a sense of anxiety and unease that can’t be placed.
Green Aventurine, with its strong association to nature, can bring back the protective qualities of nature. Many people like to place Green Aventurine around their EMF emitting electronics, or even carry a piece next to their phone to protect against emanations.
The calming natural vibration of Green Aventurine is often found to help calm the mind and increase focus. It is said to energetically stimulate the intellectual, physical and psychological growth of children and teenagers, helping those that struggle with schoolwork or hyperactivity.
Physical Healing Properties
Have you experienced heart problems, or are you recovering from a heart attack? Do you experience issues of the skin like eczema, rosacea or acne?
Green Aventurine is associated with the heart chakra and its stimulation of this chakra can help heal the heart, promote general health and prevent heart attacks. Green Aventurine is also associated with love because of its connection to the heart chakra. It is especially effective for this purpose when paired with Rose Quartz and when seeking love in later life.
Green Aventurine is also believed to help heal skin issues like eczema, rosacea or acne. By placing the stone on the skin, or placing it in water to create an elixir to use as an ablution, many people experience healing of the skin.
