Gleaming gold plated pendant set with a gorgeous A-Grade Aventurine cabochon.

This quartz-based gemstone is known for its bright inclusions and glistening or shimmering effect (aventurescence). This effect comes from the presence of chrome-bearing fuchsite, which adds a silvery green or silvery blue sheen to the stone. Red, orange and brown types of aventurine are created when hematite or goethite is present instead of fuchsite.

Aventurine gets its name from the Italian word "avventura"--by chance, risk or luck. Its name is tied to the creation of goldstone, and the name for the manmade material was transferred to the natural material once the gemstone was identified.

We were told that centuries ago, Tibetans decorated their statues with the stone we call aventurine, used most often in the eyes, so each shimmer of light increased the statue's visionary powers. Until the 19th Century, aventurine was called the "stone of the Amazons," as the deposits in Brazil were thought to have supplied the jewels of Amazon warrior queens.

Aventurine has a number of bynames and trade names, including adventurine, aventurine quartz and Indian "jade." Besides being used for beads and jewelry-making, aventurine is also carved into ornamental or décor pieces such as bowls, vases and statuettes. It has occasionally appeared in landscaping and as building material for monuments.

The name Aventurine has been used by Venetian glassmakers, credit card processing companies, video game developers and even private equity firms.

Though there isn't a "d" in the word, aventurine makes wearers think "adventure." Think optimism. Think bountiful. Think practical enthusiasm. This stone is believed to be a positive stone of prosperity, diffusing negative emotions, reinforcing leadership, promoting compassion and encouraging perseverance. It is a stone used to promote open-mindedness and the ability to see alternatives and possibilities, which is why it is considered a lucky stone for gamblers!

Specific colors of aventurine are thought to have additional properties:

Blue: Promotes mental healing.
Green: Eases mental and emotional trauma, dissolving negative thought and bringing calm.
Red: Boosts creativity, vitality and sensuality.

Aventurine can fade with prolonged exposure to the sun, so store gems in a dark place. It also reacts to extreme temperatures, so keep this gemstone off the dash of your car in summer or in winter. Be sure to clean this gemstone in warm soapy water and a soft cloth or brush. This gemstone's hardness makes it durable, but it can be sheared, so keep it separate from other gemstones. Keep away from household chemicals.
