The name ‘Aventurine’ comes from the beautiful shimmering finish of this stone. Its name relates to the word aventurescence, which refers to the “glittery” effect of tiny particles of highly reflective mineral contained in a less reflective whole.
The spiritual meaning of Aventurine is that of the ‘heart healer’. It is linked to Anahata, the Heart Chakra, the activator of love, appreciation, and inner harmony.
The Heart Chakra, green on the outside and pink on the inside, is a perfect metaphor to understand the energy of aventurine. The green acting as the outer shield protecting the soft, pink heart, our inner vulnerabilities.
Green Aventurine is the most popular version of this wealthy and wonderful stone. For those who are keen to attract a little more of Lady Luck’s energy into their world, it is the stone to turn to. Along with being a talisman of good fortune, this stone is also ready to soothe the soul, regulate your energy, and keep your heart open and ready to receive.
