Green aventurine belongs to the Chalcedony family. It’s a microcrystalline that contains Quartz. This green crystal is usually formed in magmatic rocks such as Pegmatites and hydrothermal veins. It has a lot of small flakey inclusions that reflect the light which causes a sparkly appearance called aventurescence. A common inclusion that can be found is the muscovite mica called Fuchsite. That’s actually the mineral that produces the well known unique green shade of Green Aventurine.Aventurine can occur in other colors like teal, red, orange, and more!
Aventurine is a silicon dioxide crystal. It is a 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness depending on the abundance of the mica inclusions. These crystals usually have a conchoidal fracture, but if there is a lot of mica with a common orientation it can lead to easy breakage.
Aventurine’s name has a couple of theories connected to its origin. One of them suggests that the name was inspired by the term aventurescence and others may believe that it comes from the Italian word “avontura” which means “by chance”.

The stone is part of the Quartz family.

When polished, aventurine will also range from a matte or dull polish to one with a super shine. Polishing aventurine brings out more of the stone’s natural shimmer and makes the green coloration more vibrant.
The glittery shine that can be seen within the aventurine is caused by reflective particles of chrome being trapped within the crystal. This shimmering is called aventurescence and is often used synonymously with the term “schiller effect’ by mineralogists. Not all green aventurine will have shimmer though, it is quite often found without it.
