What are the origins of the Aventurine stone?

Although this natural mineral has existed for a very long time, it was discovered in around 1600 in the Murano region, near Venice. At that time, a glass worker was said to have dropped copper flakes and brass filings into the molten glass at random. As a result, he obtained a glass filled with flakes, which looked like a real stone. In Italian "per aventura" means "by chance", and that's how aventurine was born!

Throughout the ages, other names have been given this precious stone, for example, it can be found under the English name "Prase", which comes from the Greek meaning "leek", in reference to its green color.

Today, its main deposits are found in the Americas and Asia (especially China and India).

The Aventurine stone throughout the world over the years

From prehistoric times, especially in Ethiopia, tools were made of aventurine. However, unlike other gemstones, it is strangely absent from mythologies and traditions.

However, this gem has been associated with many symbols throughout history:

More than 4000 years ago, for example, it symbolized spiritual knowledge for the Celts, while for the Chinese it was an imperial stone and bore the name "Yรน". The latter associated it with the goddess Guanyin Pusa, who represented unconditional love and pity.

A few thousand of years later, Tibetans believed that wearing this mineral in the form of an amulet corrected problems with vision, especially nearsightedness. This is why their statues had green eyes, made of aventurine.

Then, approximately 2000 years before our era, the Incas used it to attract wealth. The aventurine stone had always had the virtue of attracting financial prosperity (that is why it pleases the Taurus). Thereafter, in the 1890s during the Klondike Gold Rush in North America and Canada, gold seekers used this mineral as a talisman to attract good fortune during their search.

Finally, in 19th century Russia, aventurine was used in the design of all kinds of decorative objects such as vases, candlesticks, table ornaments and jewelry.

In London, at the British Museum, one can also admire a large vase carved from aventurine. Originally from Central Asia, it had been offered by Tsar Nicolas II to the head of the British Geological Survey.

Aventurine, a stone that soothes

How can one purify and recharge this stone?

Like all quartz, Aventurine must absolutely be purified as soon as it comes into your possession, but does not require any particular maintenance. To remove the influences it has been charged with, soak it for a minimum of 3 hours in salt or distilled water.

To recharge it, place it under natural light (the morning sun or a moonbeam will be perfectly suitable). You can also recharge it by placing it on a quartz cluster.

Although aventurine is a resistant stone, it is sensitive to chemicals. Avoid exposing it to these types of products when cleaning or using cosmetics. It can also be damaged by strong heat, so be careful not to expose it too long in the sun at the risk of damaging it.
