Colorful inclusions

Aventurine is a quartz variety known for its clear inclusions that give the stone a shiny appearance. This phenomenon is called 'aventurescence'. Fuchsite inclusions provide a silvery green or blue sheen and hematite or goethite inclusions create orange, brown and yellow aventurine.

By chance

Aventurine was first discovered in the 18th century. The name comes from the Italian, "a ventura" which means "by chance". One day around the year 1700, a worker accidentally dropped metal filings into a vessel of melting glass. After the glass cooled, beautiful and random iridescent sparkles appeared. The name "aventurine" was later given to the natural stone because of its resemblance to this glass.
