Aventurine Meaning, Powers and History

aventurine-mineral-properties-facts.jpg
Aventurine is a translucent form of quartz known for its bright inclusions that give it a shimmery look, which has been named “aventurescence.” The aventurescence comes from the presence of chrome-bearing fuchsite, which adds a silvery green or silvery blue sheen to the crystal. Hematite or goethite inclusions create orange and brown crystals. Aventurine can thus be found in different colors such as orange, blue, gray, brown and yellow, but it is most often green. Some aventurine is mistaken for malachite when it is green, banded, and has a lot of fuchsite, making the crystal opaque.

Aventurine was first discovered in the 18th Century. Its name comes from the Italian, “a ventura,” or “all’avventura,” meaning, “by chance.” One day sometime in the 1700’s, a worker accidentally dropped metal filings into a vat of melting glass. When the glass cooled, it was used to make jewelry as it had beautiful, random iridescent sparkles throughout it. The name “aventurine” was later given to the natural stone as it looked like this glass. Most green and blue aventurine is found in India while the white, gray and orange aventurine is found in Russia, Spain, and Chile.
