Crystal in the spotlight: Aventurine

aventurine

Day 4 already! You know what that means? The summer solstice is getting near.

Of course, it also means that we’ve worked our way up to the heart chakra in our little ‘crystal in the spotlight’ marathon. And the stone of the day is…? Aventurine! You may have noticed that both chrysoprase and malachite (our two previous crystal superstars) are also strongly connected to the heart. Green is the color of the heart chakra, so many green stones have an association to the heart chakra.

In fact, aventurine can be a variety of colors, and each of these varieties has its own unique properties. Aventurine has a high quartz content, but it is the presence of other minerals that determines its color. Green aventurine, the type that I picked up in Oklahoma, is the most common variety. The green color is produced by the addition of fuchsite to the quartz crystals.

I think that my favorite quality of green aventurine is that it facilitates connection to the devic kingdom, making it a friend of the gardener. Any friend of the gardener is a friend of mine!

Aventurine is another great protection stone, protecting the heart and regenerating heart energy. It also balances male and female energies, and promotes leadership qualities.

On a physical level, aventurine promotes feelings of well-being and heals parts of the body found in the region of the heart and throat (heart, lungs, adrenals, and sinuses).

Here’s to you, aventurine! Welcome to the family!
