Description

This Viking knit necklace is made with silver filled wire, red aventurine chips, sterling silver cones and a sterling silver hook clasp. It is approximately 24 inches in length.

Aventurine gets its name from the Italian word "avventura"--by chance, risk or luck. Its name is tied to the creation of goldstone, and the name for the manmade material was transferred to the natural material once the gemstone was identified.

We were told that centuries ago, Tibetans decorated their statues with the stone we call aventurine, used most often in the eyes, so each shimmer of light increased the statue's visionary powers. Until the 19th Century, aventurine was called the "stone of the Amazons," as the deposits in Brazil were thought to have supplied the jewels of Amazon warrior queens.
Aventurine has a number of bynames and trade names, including adventurine, adventurine quartz and Indian "jade." Besides being used for beads and jewelry-making, aventurine is also carved into ornamental or décor pieces such as bowls, vases and statuettes. It has occasionally appeared in landscaping and as building material for monuments.
The name Aventurine has been used by Venetian glassmakers, credit card processing companies, video game developers and even private equity firms.

Though there isn't a "d" in the word, aventurine makes wearers think "adventure." Think optimism. Think bountiful. Think practical enthusiasm. This stone is believed to be a positive stone of prosperity, diffusing negative emotions, reinforcing leadership, promoting compassion and encouraging perseverance. It is a stone used to promote open-mindedness and the ability to see alternatives and possibilities, which is why it is considered a lucky stone for gamblers!

Specific colors of aventurine are thought to have additional properties:

Blue: promotes mental healing

Green: eases mental and emotional trauma, dissolving negative thought and bringing calm

Red: boosts creativity, vitality and sensuality
Aventurine Geological Properties
This quartz-based gemstone is known for its bright inclusions and glistening or shimmering effect (aventurescence). This effect comes from the presence of chrome-bearing fuchsite, which adds a silvery green or silvery blue sheen to the stone. Red, orange and brown types of aventurine are created when hematite or goethite is present instead of fuchsite.
Aventurine has been discovered as beads, talismans and tools in archaeological digs as far back as the Omo Valley in Ethiopia (2.5 million years). We've been using aventurine (no matter what we called it) for a very, very long time! Aventurine's superiority for tool-making is due to its hardness and the inherent isotropic brittleness which makes it easy to shape.
Aventurine is found in Europe, India, Chile, Tanzania, Brazil and across northern Asia (including China, Nepal, Tibet and Russia).
