Healing Properties of Green Aventurine

Spiritual: Green Aventurine is a stone of freedom and the quest to be free from anything which limits our joy and personal growth. It encourages us to live in full integrity where our”‘walk” matches our “talk.”  Green Aventurine helps us to become fully present and alive in the NOW, while trusting ourselves to handle the future as it comes and letting go of any regrets from the past. This makes it a wonderful stone for reaching the meditative state of “no mind.”  Green Aventurine is also a “lucky” stone and is especially good at attracting financial prosperity as wells as nature spirits. Green Aventurine is attuned to the Heart and Solar Plexus Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Aries. It is connected to the elements of Earth, Water; and vibrates to the number 3.

Emotional: Green Aventurine urges us to live from a heart-centered place and to be confident about the future. It is a stone of action yet also of patience and calmness, it helps us to channel our passions in constructive ways and to acknowledge our progress. It can help us deal with difficult emotional situations and to make choices that will best serve ourselves and others. Green Aventurine combats depression, anxiety, and other negative emotions, replacing them with confidence in ourselves and the sure knowledge that we are capable of creating a happier future. Green Aventurine also helps us balance our male/female energies and enhances our creativity. There is a delightful lightness to Green Aventurine’s energy, helping us see the humor in any situation and to look on the bright side of life. It attracts true friends, comrades who can join us on life’s great journey.

Mental: Green Aventurine provides us with the confidence we need to handle new situations, such as changing jobs, schools, or homes. It reminds us that we are fully capable of, and can be successful at, anything we put our minds to. It is particularly useful when dealing with changes due to aging, whether from child to adolescence, to maturity, or becoming an elder. Green Aventurine helps us to see how each phase of life is beautiful and full of positive meanings. It encourages us to see life as an adventure and ourselves as pioneers. Green Aventurine also amplifies our leadership abilities and our ability to act decisively.

Physical: Green Aventurine is thought to be an excellent stone for healing and regulating the physical heart and circulatory system. It is said to be particularly useful as a first aid stone for infants, children, and the elderly. It is most often used by metaphysical healers to increase physical vitality and strengthen our will to live. Its calming effect on the mind also makes it a valuable sleep aid.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Location: Major Aventurine deposits are located in Brazil, India, and Russia. Additional deposits are in Austria, Chile, Spain, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

Mineral Family: Green Aventurine is a type of Quartz, which is in turn a Silicate mineral. Silicate minerals form the largest family of minerals, including more than 25% of all known minerals and 40% of all common minerals. In addition to being a major part of the Earth’s crust, Silicate minerals have also been found on the moon and in meteorites. Silicates are minerals which contain the elements Silicon (a light gray shiny metal) and Oxygen (a colorless gas). Together, these two elements form a tetrahedron – a shape similar to a pyramid – with a Silicon atom in the center and Oxygen atoms at each of the four corners. These tetrahedra connect with other chemical structures, in six different ways, to form various minerals and rocks. There are six main groups of Silicate minerals, and these main groups are further subdivided into secondary subdivisions, such as Quartz and Feldspar. Quartz is a large mineral family in its own right, and has two main subdivisions, macrocrystalline (crystals that are large enough to be seen by the naked eye, for example, Amethyst) and microcrystalline (crystals so small they can only be seen through a microscope, for example, Agate). Aventurine is one of these macrocrystalline Quartzes. It is most commonly green, but may also be blue, orangepink, red, white, or yellow.

Formation: Aventurine is created when liquid magma from a volcanic explosion cools down and transforms into igneous rock. During this cooling down period, silica acid bubbles shift from being a gas/liquid into a solid compound. The bubble becomes a hollow space in the igneous rock and the silica acid becomes Quartz crystals. Trace particles of Iron and Fuchsite (chromium mica) within the silica acid gives Green Aventurine its color and sparkle.

Mining: Typically mined from the primary deposits which still have their original relationship with the host rock. They are typically found as companion stones in commercial mines for various colored Quartzes, Calcite, and other gemstones.

Enhancements: All Aventurines on the market are natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.

History of Green Aventurine

All colors of Aventurine may be considered relatively “new” healing stones whose properties have only recently begun to be explored. Aventurine was not included as a distinct mineral in most early lapidaries, texts which describe gemstones and their powers.

According to one modern lapidary, ancient Tibetan statues were often decorated with Aventurine, particularly for the eyes. Supposedly, this was to symbolically increase the statue’s visionary powers; whether this is a historically accurate statement or not is less clear.

The one thing we absolutely know about the history of Aventurine is how it got its name. It comes from the Italian a ventura, meaning “by chance.” The name actually refers to the 18th century discovery of Goldstone, a man-made sparkly glass, which is usually golden-orange or blue-purple. Goldstone has a distinctive sparkle. Natural Aventurine also sparkles, although less uniformly. 

One of the ways that geologists identify stones is by their luster, or how light reflects off a stone. For example, Quartz has a Vitreous (like glass) luster, while Hematite has a Metallic luster, and Jade has a Waxy luster. A few stones have very special lusters, like Tigers Eye’s chatoyancy luster with is luminous moving bands and Labradorite’s iridescent luster (schiller effect) with its bright flashing colors.

On other special luster is “aventurescent” – the official term for stones that sparkle and glitter. Only two natural gemstones have this quality. Aventurine and Sunstone.

Sourcing Relationship.

I first met one of the owners of the lapidary at the Denver Gem Show in 2017.  Our first encounter was short since it was my last day of shopping and I had already spent most of my budget.  But their tumbled stock was the highest quality I had ever seen.  A few months later we met again in Tucson and this time I made sure to see them at the beginning of the show!

In 2019, at the Tucson Gem Show, I was able to sit down with both owners and have a lengthy conversation about sourcing.  Unlike most vendors, they were willing to speak with me in-depth about how they make sure their business is ethical.  We talked about individual mines they source from both in India as well as how they source from other countries.  We also talked about how they treat their own workers and about the links between business, karma and God.   Their willingness to talk and their pleasure at the conversation makes me eager to continue to develop and deepen this relationship.
