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 beads have such great character! The color is a rustic orange, and the cube shape could add a unique flair to any beading project. Each bead has interesting inclusions that add depth, and the shaping helps accentuate these inclusions.
Orange Aventurine has been referred to as the "Whisper Stone" as it is believed to help quiet the critical or judgmental inner voice and serves to clear out blockages between the Sacral and Third-Eye Chakras. If you're looking for a change and an adventure than this stone may be just for you; it is considered to help manifest exciting new possibilities in your life as well!
