First reported in 1837, it has been associated with luck ever since. However, this stone has a lot more to offer.
Aventurine was originally discovered due to an accident in a Venetian glass factory in the 18th century when copper filings spilt into a batch of glass during production. An Italian family created an iridescent glass known as goldstone, which closely resembles Aventurine. The name passed from the glass to the mineral, which displayed a rather similar appearance.
Aventurine is found in many colours, green, red, pink, blue, yellow, grey, orange and brown with the majority of green and blue-green originating in India. Other colours can be found in Spain, Russia and Chile. Brazil is also a large producer of Aventurine.
