The Opportunity Stone:
This past week was St Patrick’s Day, so it’s pretty fitting to talk about a crystal that can help bring us luck! Green aventurine can be your lucky charm and open your mind to new, prosperous opportunities. Green is my favourite colour, so this soft green crystal has a special place in my heart (and not just because it’s connected with the heart chakra haha)!
The name “aventurine” comes from the Italian term “a venture,” meaning “by chance.” This alludes to aventurine’s tie to luck and good fortune. Aventurine is part of the quartz crystal family and is found in India, the Amazon, Russia, Brazil, and Chile.
Aventurine crystal comes in shades of blue, yellow, red, orange, and brown — but green is most common. Green aventurine is known as the “Stone of Opportunity” and is thought to be the luckiest of all crystals. (Sage Crystals) Overall, green aventurine brings abundance and nurtures action and leadership. It gives you a positive mindset that believes anything is achievable.
Green aventurine is thought to help balance your nervous system, benefit the thymus gland, stimulate metabolism, lower your blood pressure, improve circulation (because it’s associated with the heart chakra) and boost your well-being. Due to this, this is a good crystal to have if you’re recovering from a long illness.
It’s also believed that aventurine has an anti-inflammatory effect and can ease skin irritations, allergies, migraines, and soothe the eyes. It can also help settle nausea. Aventurine is just an all-around physical healer.
