Aventurine is a member of the Quartz family. Green is the most common colour of aventurine and its colour is due to an inclusion of Fuchsite particles, which sparkle within the quartz.
Green aventurine is associated with the heart chakra. It is often overlooked for prettier pink crystals when selecting a crystal for the heart, but it should not be underestimated, as it is an amazing crystal for healing.
The green aventurine is a balancing stone. It aids in finding peace and harmony when dealing with the ups and downs of life by calming anger and annoyance. It also helps when working through unresolved emotional issues and balances male and female energies.
Green Aventurine encourages optimism and self-confidence amid difficulties, by giving a feeling of lightness to the situation. It releases old patterns or habits so that growth can take place and then it helps to embrace new situations with confidence and an open mind.
It is said that Green Aventurine is the stone of opportunity and luck and is great for boosting one’s chances in a situation or learning about oneself and one's place in the universe. It may also be used as a love crystal by those seeking love later in life.
Green Aventurine can be a stone of “good luck” and is recommended for those who wish to manifest greater prosperity. It can assist in other situations where one’s overt external actions do not control the outcome. It would be a good stone to carry to a tax audit, for winning a bet or on a first date.
Green Aventurine encourages regeneration of the heart. It stimulates the metabolism of fat and lowers cholesterol. It also has an anti-inflammatory effect, soothes pain, helps ease eruptions of the skin, skin disease & allergies and fortifies the connective tissues.
My experience of living with Green Aventurine;
When I worked with Green Aventurine 3 years ago, it helped me to release a lot of emotion. I cried… a lot! This time when I have worked with it, I have been aware of some release, but far less dramatic. No matter how much we believe we are balanced and in alignment, everyday life and interactions with others will affect this. Green Aventurine is perfect for bringing that balance back into our lives and realigning us.
This week an opportunity has been suggested to me that I know is totally in alignment with my path in life. It is in the early stages of planning, but nonetheless, I feel that it will be a wonderful opportunity for the future. I feel that the Green Aventurine has helped me this week by bringing this opportunity into my life, but also allowing me to receive it with an open mind and more importantly, self-confidence with regard to my part in it.
