Healing Properties of Red Aventurine

Spiritual: Red Aventurine is a fantastic stone for manifestation because it encourage us to take action to achieve our dreams and to stay committed despite challenges. It links the Base Charka with the Heart, helping us to feel deeply grounded while also light and balanced. During meditation, Red Aventurine helps us to stay fully present in the NOW and to relax into physical alignment during our spiritual practices. Red Aventurine also shows us that pleasure and sensuality are not divorced from spirituality, and so is highly recommended for anyone studying Tantric and dealing with feelings of guilt or sin surrounding sex. Red Aventurine is attuned to the Root and Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Aries. It is connected to the elements of Earth and Fire and vibrates to the number 3.

Emotional: Red Aventurine celebrates the positive power of sexuality and sensuality and can be used to flame desire. It encourages us to stay heart-centered in all of our relationships and to always act with integrity. Red Aventurine insists that our “walk” matches our “talk” and that we live with great courage.  It gently forces us to be honest with ourselves about who we are and what we most want in life. It helps us to be more forgiving and to not take ourselves too seriously. Red Aventurine teaches us that sexual desire is natural and when approached with love and honesty, it is a source of great joy, growth, and healing.

Mental: Red Aventurine provides us with the confidence we need to handle new situations and reminds us that we are fully capable of handling anything life throws at us. It amplifies our leadership abilities and our ability to act decisively. Red Aventurine helps us to balance out the left/right sides of our brains and to think more holistically. It also helps us to balance and align our male/female energies, and to use whichever energy best fits the situation.

Physical: Red Aventurine is believed to be an excellent stone for healing and regulating the physical heart and circulatory system. It is said to be helpful for balancing auto-immune disorders and strengthening the immune system as a whole. It is commonly used by metaphysical healers for detoxes, as well as for treatments that focus specifically on the liver.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Mineral Family: Red 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, white, 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 give 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 Red 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.  

When we know better, we do better.


Ethical sourcing is a constantly evolving process.

If the original sourcing for the stone still passes Moonrise Crystals’ current standards, it will be restocked as soon as possible.

If the original sourcing is no longer acceptable, it will be restocked when/if a better supplier can be found.


The majority of Aventurine is wild-harvested by dredging, which has a horrific environmental impact.

 Some Aventurine is farmed or grown in aquacultures, but many of these sources are problematic or not what they claim to be.

There are thousands of species of Aventurine, only some of which can be harvested in a sustainable manner.

Moonrise Crystals is seeking a truly ethical source for Aventurine.
