Aventurine Meaning & Uses
Green Aventurine has been long associated with luck. In fact, it’s name is derived from the Italian word ‘a Ventura’, meaning ‘by chance’. If you need luck on your side (for a competition, in love or perhaps for an exam!) keeping some Aventurine beads close to you may just swing the balance in your favour.
Additionally, as Green Aventurine is a member of the Heart Chakra it is said to bring a sense of calmness. It is a nurturing, loving crystal; not only will it aid in opening one’s heart to let love in, it may also help develop empathy allowing you to connect more closely with others. In the long term, these positive effects may lead to an overall sense of well-being.
Physically, these calming effects may have a knock-on effect on the nervous system; balancing blood pressure and reducing nervous tension and stress. It is probably due to this reduction in stress that Aventurine is known as an effective healing stone in general.
