Description: [Aventurine’s] name is derived from the Italian a ventura, a type of glass discovered around the year 1700. The name was chosen because of the likeness of the glass with its randomly spaced iridescent sparkles to these stones with their similar markings. Aventurine is found primarily in three colors–green, blue, and red-brown…. It energetically supports one in taking responsibility for oneself and one’s life successfully…. As one becomes stronger and more ‘comfortable in one’s own skin,’ innate powers and sensitivities which had been blocked by inner disharmonies can begin to surface.
