Aventurine - color

The most popular color variety of aventurine is green, but due to the inclusion of other minerals, it can also be found in other colors such as red, blue, brown, orange, or yellow. A characteristic feature of aventurine is the phenomenon of aventurescence, which involves shimmering. The effect visible on the surface of the stone is caused by the presence of mineral flakes that disperse under the influence of light, creating sparkling reflections. The final color of aventurine depends on the type and amount of inclusions of other minerals. We distinguish the following varieties of aventurine:

  • green aventurine - the color is caused by chromium inclusions
  • brown aventurine - contains hematite inclusions
  • blue aventurine - has dumortierite inclusions
  • yellow aventurine - results from pyrite inclusions with mica crystals
  • purple aventurine - owes its color to lepidolite.

Because of its color, aventurine is sometimes confused with jasper, emerald, chrysoprase or sunstone.

Aventurine - usage

In ancient times, aventurine was used to make edged weapons, but it was also used as an ornamental stone to make utensils, amulets, and figurines. Because of its properties, aventurine is a valuable collector's item. Currently, Aventurine is a valued gemstone, influenced by its unique color. Aventurine stones are usually cut into cabochons to enhance their luster and brilliance.
