Think of aventurine as the "four leaf clover" of the mineral world. When you need a bit of good luck, aventurine is the stone you should reach for. It is said to attract money and good fortune. Some even call it the "gambler's stone". But rest assured, it does not have to be used in games of chance in order to bring financial gain. Aventurine magnifies the effects of hard work and dedication to a dream. This truly is a stone of success.
When you are feeling at odds with the world, aventurine works to gently release negative emotions you have bottled up inside, so that you can feel more in tune with those around you. It encourages friendship, harmony, and trust. Keep a piece of aventurine close at hand, and you will feel rejuvenated, both mentally and physically. It helps to alleviate stress, and brings calm contentment.
According to some, it increases psychic abilities, and is useful when practicing divination.
Some charts list aventurine as an alternative birthstone for the month of August. It is also a traditional gift for the 8th wedding anniversary.
You are purchasing a set of three tumbled Green Aventurine gemstones. Stones will vary in size and shape, but most are in the range of 1/2" to 1 1/4".
How should I use my gemstones?
Keep them close by, in your pocket, or in a small dish at your work space. Handle them often, as you focus on your needs and wishes. Sleep with them under your pillow. Place them on your altar. Whisper your wishes to them when no one else can hear you. The only thing we do NOT recommend doing is using your gemstones to infuse water that you will be drinking.
How can I cleanse my gemstones?
Over time, gemstones can pick up negative energies as they are used. Many different methods can be employed to cleanse your stones. Bury them in a small container of salt for a few days. Hold them in running water (this is not recommended for soft gemstones like selenite or jet). Let them sit overnight in the light from a full moon. Place them where a fresh breeze can pass over them.
