Green Aventurine 12mm Mala Bead
Aventurine is a form of quartz, characterized by its translucency and the presence of platy mineral inclusions that give a shimmering or glistening effect termed aventurescence. The most common color of aventurine is green, but it may also be orange, brown, yellow, blue, or gray. Chrome-bearing fuchsite (a variety of muscovite mica) is the classic inclusion, and gives a silvery green or blue sheen. Oranges and browns are attributed to hematite or goethite. Because aventurine is a rock, its physical properties vary: its specific gravity may lie between 2.64-2.69 and its hardness is somewhat lower than single-crystal quartz at around 6.5.
Green Aventurine is said to comfort and protect the heart. While it can help attract love later in life, it is also one of the premier stones to attract luck, abundance and success. That being said, it is known as a 'stone of personal growth'.Chakra: Heart
