This Aventurine slab is a delight of greens, from light spring green to hints of blue-green. It is a very clean slab that provides optimal use of the material for cabbing.
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.
In gemology, aventurescence is an optical reflectance effect found in certain gems. The effect amounts to a metallic glitter arising from minute mineral platelets within the material. These platelets are so numerous that they also influence the materials' body color. Chrome-bearing fuchsite produces the green in Aventurine.
Metaphysically... Aventurine is used for activating growth and renewal. It enhances creativity, success, independence, prosperity, calm and balance.
