We’ve got a handful of interesting tidbits for you on this alluring jade-hued gemstone…
1 In Chinese mythology, this special gem honours Kuan-Yin, the Chinese Goddess of mercy and compassion. She is one of the most beloved of the Chinese goddesses and is regarded by many as the protector of women and children, and champion of the underdog.
2 With this in mind, Aventurine is often gifted to pregnant women to encourage the everlasting bond that exists between mothers and their young.
3 Aventurine is most commonly green, though it also forms in blue, red to reddish-brown, dusty purple, orange, yellow and silver grey. It is mostly translucent and often banded with different hues, representing the layers of the personality that it can help peel back.
4 Green Aventurine shows us that we all have different levels to our souls, but advocates non-judgement and acceptance of others.
5 It can also help facilitate the release of unhealthy relationships but also reminds us that we’re all children of the universe – each of us beautifully unique and individual no matter our difference.
