Known as the Stone of Opportunity, Aventurine is highly sought after for its sparkle and rich green hues that can range from beautiful pastels to deeper shades. These colours can be banded, translucent or opaque, depending on the mineral levels in the different stones, but each bead brings it own wonderfully unique quality that can only be gained from a natural material such as this. The semi-precious gemstone is said to align conditions to bring opportunity and prosperity and enhances your creativity. Aventurine Stones and gemstones are ideal for creating eye-catching focal points or breaking up a colour-block piece and are truly stunning when mixed with Swarovski crystals and other semi-precious gemstones.
