Aventurine is a member of the Quartz family and is found primarily in three colors - green, blue and red-brown. The color of green aventurine comes from microscopic Fuchsite particles within the Quartz. Major deposits of aventurine are found in Brazil, Russia and India.
Green Aventurine is a Water and Earth element stone and resonates with the heart chakra.
With the combination of Water and Earth element energies, it allows you to remain emotionally stable through periods of change and upheaval. It acts as an emotional anchor, keeping you heart-centered during emotional storms.
Its frequency stimulates a sense of hope, joy, optimism and a zest for life. In this manner, I consider this my overall "feel good" stone. It gives me a feeling of lightness and a sense of "all is well" when dealing with the ups and downs of life.
Green Aventurine is also considered a stone of "good luck" and can be used to manifest greater prosperity in your life.
On the physical level, Green Aventurine helps heal the heart and regulate the circulatory system. It also stimulates cell repair, regrowth and general healing. It enhances the movement of life-force energy in the body and increases physical vitality.
This unassuming stone packs a powerful combination of emotional and physical healing and you only need to be near it to receive its benefits. I hope you find it as helpful in your life as it has been in mine!
