Aventurine 8mm Round Str16"/50Bds


Aventurine occurs in many different colors including green, blue, red, brown and peach. This stone can be found in Italy, China, Brazil, India, Russia, Tibet and Nepal. Its hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale has long made aventurine a popular choice for carving and bead making. Green aventurine contains particles of mica, which cause it to glisten in the light. These specks also help us tell the difference between green aventurine and the much harder jades. In Russia in the 1880ís, green aventurine was used by the jeweler Faberge to make his famous eggs. Aventurine encourages the expression of gratitude, hope and positive approaches to life. Use aventurine after a period of illness to aid in healing and to calm the mind and body. Aventurine combines with other green, carnelian, riverstone, and earthtones such as picture jasper and some types of ocean jasper. Use with silver, copper or gold findings. Strands are 16 inches long with approximately 50 beads.
