Healing Properties of Yellow Aventurine
Spiritual: Yellow Aventurine teaches us the deep spiritual wisdom of joy. It shouts that the Divine loves to see us dancing, laughing, and giving in to outrageous spontaneous acts of kindness. It shows us that we honor the Divine best when we enjoy our life and enjoy the creation all around us. Yellow Aventurine invites us to explore the idea that the quest for enlightenment doesn’t need to be a serious struggle, and can instead be a merry journey. The energy of the Laughing Buddha or the Japanese God Hotai is embodied in this stone. Yellow Aventurine is attuned to the Solar Plexus, Heart and linked to the astrological sign of Aries. It is connected to the elements of Fire and Water and vibrates to the number 3.
Emotional: Yellow Aventurine has a happy-go-lucky energy. It encourages us to relax and find ways to “work smarter” rather than to “work harder.” It also insists that we conduct ourselves with the highest Integrity. It requires that when we make mistakes, we acknowledge them, fix what can be fixed, and then move on and not dwell on the past. Yellow Aventurine encourages us to play more and be open to new ideas. It is a wonderful stone for anyone who works with children or the young-at-heart, as well as adventurers of all types and ages.
Mental: Yellow Aventurine asks us to be brave, to trust ourselves, and to trust the world to be a genuinely good place to be. When we encounter injustice and danger, Yellow Aventurine encourages us to take action to solve problems and make the world a better place. It is a stone of action, asking us to not just “feel bad” about something or seek to “increase awareness” about something, but rather to personally get involved in finding and implementing real solutions. Yellow Aventurine attracts good people and good fortune, providing us with the resources we need to make a difference.
Physical: Yellow 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 has been used by metaphysical healers to help break substance abuse habits, eating disorders, and for anger management.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Mineralogy of Yellow Aventurine
Mineral Family: Tectosilicate
Chemical Composition: SiO2
Crystal System: Hexagonal/triagonal
Fracture: Conchoidal, brittle
Transparency: Transparent to opaque
Location: Major Aventurine deposits are located in Brazil, India, and Russia. Additional deposits are in Austria, Chile, Spain, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.
Mineral Family: Yellow 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, orange, pink, red, or white.
Formation: Aventurine is created when liquid magma from a volcanic explosion cools down and transforms into igneous rocks. 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 Yellow 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 Quartz, Calcite, and other gemstones.
Enhancements: All Aventurines on the market are natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
History of Yellow 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.
