Aventurine Properties and Information

Aventurine (aka Indian jade) is generally a translucent mineral, but when possessing higher amounts of inclusions, it can be opaque. Its name comes from an Italian word meaning ‘by chance.’ The term originally came about when an Italian fellow spilt metal shavings into a tub of molten glass, and the finished product turned out to be attractive. But with that said, the same title in recent times being applied to this stone doesn't change the fact that it is a bonafide mineral, not glass. It is commonly found in Italy, India, China, Tibet, Brazil, Nepal, and Russia.

For all colors and generally speaking, aventurine's properties are as follows: It balances yin and yang, increases life force energies, strengthens leadership skills, and increases the ability to succeed. As well it draws prosperity, protects against EMF emissions, promotes decisiveness, and encourages empathy and compassion.

In General Well Being

It can help when we're facing difficulty in completing projects to a logical point of closure, it eases stuttering, and it creates stability within various mental issues. This stone enhances creativity, heightens accuracy in perception, and encourages one to adopt a solution-seeking mentality. It soothes us when we're experiencing anger or frayed nerves. It provides a sense of well being, and encourages healing within all levels of heart chakra issues. It also targets the higher heart chakra and related blockages.
