Blue 💙 Aventurine

I was inspired by a game post that @Limeberry posted to write about blue aventurine. This is a crystal that I knew nothing about until researching it for you all! So, here goes!

What is blue aventurine?

Blue Aventurine is a member of the quartz family that is characterized by its mica and other mineral inclusions that give it its shimmering effect. Its name comes from the Italian word a ventura or avventura which means “by chance” and perhaps alludes to the way the stone is formed.

Blue Aventurine is not the only form of Aventurine. It comes in many different colors, and each stone has its own correspondences and energy. For example, Green Aventurine is wonderful for protection while pink aventurine works wonders for creativity and wisdom.

In the 1700s, a worker accidentally dropped some metal filings in a vat of melting glass. When it cooled, it resulted in something with beautiful and iridescent sparkles. (Source)

Such a beautiful stone! I admit I sometimes get Aventurine mixed up with Amazonite- still not sure why. I only have one of each and I mix them up all the time- sorry, crystals! :laughing:

My Orange Aventurine and it is probably my favorite crystal I own- I picked it up in Japan because I liked the name (Aventurine = sounds like “adventure”! :joy:) and it’s come with me on a few trips since then. Learning about Blue Amazonite was lovely- thank you for sharing, @MeganB! :blue_heart:

Ooo… there is a lot of good information here about blue aventurine. I had no idea that it came in more colors than green. I have never worked with it either, but I think I am going to see if I can find a piece for me and add it to my collection.

I recently just realized another empathic gift that I have and have had for quite some time. So I’m trying to work with that when it occurs to get stronger with it. I believe the gift is with the third eye chakra because it’s shadow people or things in the corner of my periphereal vision. I just never knew there was a name for it or that it’s a gift! I’m very excited about it with the veil thinning this week.

And back at it again with mixing up stones :woman_facepalming::joy: But yes- absolutely gorgeous!

I realized that most of the stones I have with me now are orange/red themed. Maybe it’s just my love for autumn playing tricks on me, or perhaps I need to invest in some other colored stones. Blue Aventurine is going to the top of the (very long) wish list :grin::blue_heart:
