Aventurine can even assist one in embracing challenging issues like aging, illness, and one’s own mortality. It assists one in dealing with the ups and downs in life.
Aventurine also works beautifully with the Heart Chakra, as it soothes emotional wounds and assists one to remain heart-centered, allowing one to see the bright side and hope in a difficult situation. It is a powerful healer working with a soft and gentle vibration, instilling renewed life force energy and restoring depleted reserves. It can be a stone of ‘good luck’, and assists those who wish to manifest greater prosperity.
Green Aventurine’s essence is that of Spring, bursting forth after a long, dark winter.
- Aventurines name is derived from the Italian a ventura, a type of glass discovered around the year 1700.
