Aventurine Gemstone Properties


Aventurine General Gemstone Details

ə-ˈven-chə-ˌrēn
Green Aventurine

Stone of Self Reflection & Opportunity

Aventurine is a stone that is available in a variety of colors, although the shades of green are the most commonly related to the stone. Other colors include, but are not limited to: blue, red, brown, peach, yellow and grey.   This lovely stone is often mistaken for Jade, Amazonite, and in some cases, even Chalcedony.

There is a story of lore stating that the origin of the name of this stone is from Venetian Glass makers in the 18th Century accidentally dropping shimmering shavings into green glass that gave it a wonderful sparkle.  This story may not be wholly inaccurate, but it is certainly not the whole story. It is almost as if these stories state that Aventurine is not a gemstone at all, but a piece of sparkly glass, more like Goldstone. Aventurine is most assuredly a stone, not a shimmering glass.

 

Aventurine Scientific Properties


AventurineMohs Hardness of 7 with a trigonal crystal structure.

Scientifically there are two types of Aventurine. The most common is Aventurine Quartz, which has  platy inclusions of green fuchsite mica. And Aventurine Feldspar, which has green platy crystals, giving this variety more of a sparkle or glittering. Aventurine Feldspar has a Mohs hardness of 6 and has a triclinic crystal structure.

Quartz in general is one of the largest available gemstone deposits from igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary stone, covering nearly 12% of the earth’s crust.

Green Aventurine Quartz is actually considered a ‘quartzites’. Meaning that it is actually a rock, not a mineral, comprised essentially of interlocking macrocrystalline quartz grains with disseminated grains from other minerals that impart colors to the stone.

As a variety of quartz and feldspar, Aventurine deposits are found in Brazil, India, Austria, Russia, Spain, Chile, and Tanzania.  Some of the most primitive stone tools crafted by human ancestors more than 2.5 million years ago were found to be made of many quartz varieties, such as Aventurine.
