Green aventurine has a shimmering iridescence and a semitranslucent appearance. Aventurine is a metamorphic rock, meaning it is made up of more than one mineral. Green aventurine is mostly quartz with the glistening effect coming from tiny inclusions of shiny mica minerals. A beautiful polish and smooth finish. The alluring green tones vary slightly on each strand. Chip beads are versatile design components and are great for multi-strand jewelry.
