   Green aventurine is a type of quartz that gets its green color from inclusions of fuchsite or hematite. It has a waxy luster and is typically translucent to opaque. Green aventurine is often used in lapidary work and for carvings due to its relative hardness (7) and toughness.

   Green aventurine has a rich history and is believed to have been used as a talisman and healing stone by ancient cultures. In ancient Tibet, it was used to represent the "Heart Chakra" and was believed to promote compassion and empathy. In India, green aventurine was used to balance the heart chakra and promote emotional stability. Today, green aventurine is still widely used in spiritual and healing practices, and is believed to promote abundance, prosperity, and emotional well-being.
