The possibilities for these gems are endless! What will you use them for? Earrings? A pendant? Headpiece? Wire wrapped jewelry?

Aventurine is a translucent to opaque variety of microcrystalline quartz. It contains small inclusions of shiny mica (mineral) which give the stone a sparkling silverish sheen also known as aventurescence.

Aventurine ranges in color from green, peach, brown, blue and a creamy green. Besides its uses in jewelry, aventurine is also used for ornamental purposes like vases, bowls, and figurines.

Lore:
Aventurine has been used as a lucky talisman and is a popular stone for gamblers. The ancient Chinese prized aventurine; the imperial seal was said to have been carved from this material. They referred to this stone as yu, and held it in high esteem. In ages past, the Tibetans revered aventurine; to symbolize increased divinatory power the eyes in sacred statues were often made from it. Green aventurine is said to be a stone associated with the regeneration of one's spirit and creativity. It is said that this is a useful stone for people who love to pursue adventures.

Aventurine is found in India, Chile, Spain, Russia, Brazil, Austria, and Tanzania.
