A friend of mine had birthday recently and her folks bought her a pair of blue aventurine earrings and a necklace. As she knows about my passion for crystals and gem stones, she turned to me asking what aventurine is good for and how should she treat her stones. That was a good question as I have been interested in aventurine myself and researched it some time ago.
Aventurine is a form of quartz, which varies in colours- blue, green, brown, yellow, orange; but what differentiates it from all the rest are the shimmering sparkles that give it the glistening, very beautiful and unique looks. Not only is aventurine stunning, but is also a powerful stone to have around you. It is considered a stone of prosperity, which brings luck and success to its owner. Interesting fact about aventurine is that it protects against environmental pollution; it also protects against cell phone emanations. Another interesting quality of aventurine stone is that it helps you overcome addictions. If you are trying to give up smoking or you are addicted to some food you’d like to stop, keeping an aventurine stone in your pocket or under your pillow while you sleep might help.
Remember, before starting to use your healing crystal, you must clean it and charge it first. Cleaning a stone is very easy- just put it in a bowl of water (spring would be best) and wash it. Then brush it gently with a towel and put under direct sun or moon light for a few hours. There are a variety of cleansing and charging methods for your crystals, but I will talk more about it in another post.
In terms of its healing properties, aventurine is very good for your nervous system. It also balances the blood pressure and stimulates the metabolism. It has anti-inflammatory effect and eases skin eruptions and allergies. Blue aventurine in particular is a powerful mental healer.
Having aventurine in your home not only makes it more beautiful but also brings harmony and special energy. It is stunning in jewellery as well as for decoration of your house and is not expensive at all. If you want to get a crystal for yourself or for someone close to you, I would definitely recommend you aventurine (blue).
