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 Red Aventurine 3 to 4 mm rounds have a bright and vibrant yellow to orange coloring that catches light very well because of the signature aventurescence that can be found in Aventurine. These beads are small enough to work as accent beads on necklaces, bracelets, or any delicate designs.
Red Aventurine is considered a stone of discernment when choosing a path to follow, encouraging confidence and self-worth. Traditionally, Red Aventurine is a protective stone and can be included in wedding decorations as it is thought to ease tempers and create harmony.
