The aventurine brings calm and balance to our nervous system, as its green color has a calming and relaxing effect on the entire body. This can also help alleviate heart problems caused by excitement or stress.
Aventurine quartz, also called aventurine quartz, mica quartz or briefly aventurine (Avanturine), is a variety of quartz with microcrystalline inclusions of fuchsite, mica or haumlmatite, which cause a strong glitter, which is called aventurence after this variety.
Whether aventurine quartz is counted among the minerals or the rocks is a question of definition. Traditionally, it is more likely to be considered a mineral.
In Murano near Venice, at the beginning of the 18th century, a red-gold shimmering, opaque glass was produced by chance (Italian a ventura) and in a secret way, after which the later found, similar-looking quartz variety was named. The artificial product, although softer but of a much more beautiful appearance than the natural one, was preferred.
Green aventurine glass was first produced in 1865 by the French chemist Pelouze and has since been processed into jewelery in increasing quantities in French factories.
The gemstone ball has a diameter of approx. 3.0 cm and fits into all Joya massage products.
