Aventurine is a type of Quartz characterized by it's translucency and for the platy mineral inclusions that create an effect known as aventurescence; a shimmering and glistening appearance. On the Mohs Scale it is about a 6.5 for hardness, similar but somewhat lower than a single-crystal Quartz.
These rough Blue/Green Aventurine pieces range in size from smaller 1 cm chips to 4 cm pieces. These pieces certainly are a great example of aventurescence, they have a stunning aqua colored shimmer that would catch the eye in any project! Great for fountains or for placing them in with your household plants for an added touch of shimmer.
Green Aventurine is a unique and active stone, it is believed to reinforce leadership qualities and decisiveness when worn, and promote compassion and empathy in negative situations. It is considered to be connected to the Heart Chakra as well, protecting your heart and energy.
