ABOUT GREEN AVENTURINE:
Aventurine is a form of Chalcedony and part of the Quartz family. It occurs naturally in several different colors that vary depending on the mineral inclusions. Green Aventurine contains Fuchsite (a chrome mica mineral), which grants it the green color, as well as Mica which Aventurine attributes its inner sparkle (aventurescence) to.
Green Aventurine is often referred to as the all-purpose healer and nicknamed the "herb of the mineral kingdom". This means not only that it is considered by many to be good for physical disorders, but that it heals on all levels. It activates, clears and protects the Heart Chakra, and dissolves negative thoughts and emotions. It helps to balance emotions, and is one of the best stones to wear, carry or hold during particularly stressful times. Even though Green Aventurine is known as premier Heart Chakra stone, it is also very beneficial when placed on the Solar Plexus Chakra to relieve internalized stress or feelings that have been "bottled up" for a long time. The soothing Aventurine purifies the mental, emotional and etheric bodies, bringing emotional tranquility, serenity, stillness and inner peace. It facilitates balancing and alignment of the intellectual, emotional, physical, and auric bodies.
Green Aventurine heals emotional pain and imbalance, it helps to relieve anxiety and calms emotions. It instills hope and promotes spring-like vitality, growth and renewal on many levels. This beautiful gemstone encourages us to remain Heart-centered and peaceful during difficult emotional experiences, while helping us to embrace change and release attachments to the outcome. Green Aventurine works on stimulating emotional and physical healing by balancing energies and bridging a connection between our energetic polarities of: Yin/Yang (Feminine/Masculine), Mind and Heart, Conscious and Subconscious, Intellect with Intuition. One of its great lessons is teaching us how to release old detrimental behavior that can affect our health and well-being. It works at the Heart Chakra by lifting the spirits and healing the heartache of failed relationships. It also creates a shield of protection at this chakra to prevent others from draining our energy (either intentionally or unintentionally), which makes Green Aventurine a wonderful crystal ally for empaths. It helps us to connect to the vibration of the Earth, teaching us to feel with the Heart rather than think with the head.
Green Aventurine is a stone of joyous abundance. It assists us in recognizing and overcoming inner feelings (or societal mentality) of lack that may underlie poverty consciousness. It also allows us to take a detached look at our future plans, goals and motives, to focus our minds and see the possibilities. If we go outside our comfort zone, this supportive stone will gently increase our confidence, improve self-esteem, and help us to step into our true Self. Green Aventurine disconnects us from sources that sap our personal power. It prevents inappropriate relationships from "vampirizing" our Heart Center energy and helps us to live within the temple of our own Heart.
Green Aventurine has a powerful connection with the Devic (Nature Spirits, Elementals) realms, and small Aventurine stones are often used as Nature Spirit offerings, especially when harvesting herbs or other plants. Placing Green Aventurine strategically around your home or garden will protect you from geopathic stress that is caused by underground water and fault lines. It is also an excellent space and Aura protector because it blocks electromagnetic smog and pollution. It is extremely beneficial for sensitive people who respond adversely to emanations from cell phones, Wi-Fi, computers, microwaves, TV, and other electronic pollutants.
Green Aventurine is considered a stone of luck, opportunity and prosperity. When used with intent, it is considered an obstacle remover and door opener, and is said to increase luck and serendipity in every endeavor. It is definitely a good stone to have with you when interviewing for a job, going to an audition, starting a new business venture, promoting a product, playing the lottery or any game of chance. It kindles a sense of excitement and adventure in new projects, and encourages us to make our dreams come true by increasing our enthusiasm, determination, individuality and creativity. This stone helps us to be more Light-hearted and take emotional risks by opening our hearts to others and increasing our trust in life. This stone amplifies our leadership abilities, decisiveness, and helps us in finding creative solutions in challenging situations. It also enhances our ability to motivate ourselves, as well as others. Being a Heart Chakra stone, Green Aventurine enhances our ability to relate to others on an emotional level, promotes compassion, empathy and encourages perseverance. It is an amazing ally when working in groups to achieve a common goal. While it fosters cooperation and promotes service to others, with its protective qualities Green Aventurine teaches true self-worth, also overcomes a feeling of mental servitude.
Traditional lore tells that Green Aventurine is best worn or carried on the left side of the body. And, when worn near the Heart, it will bring luck in Love, a sense of overall well-being, and greater prosperity.
