Rough Green Aventurine Quartz Crystals
Large green aventurine stones that could almost be large chunks of sugar coated candy but you definitely don't want to be biting down on one of these. Their distinctive appearance is caused by platy inclusions which give them a sparkly or glistening appearance which sadly cannot be fully appreciated in a photo. The term "platy" is used to describe inclusions of other minerals which are small and flat hence shaped like a plate. Platy inclusions often have a flaky appearance and the reflection of light is what gives the stone its sparkly appearance. This optical phenomenon is correctly known as aventurescence.
Aventurine is a variety of quartz which occurs in many colours including green, red, pink, orange, blue, grey and white. Impurities of other minerals is the reason for the different coloured stones but to bring about a change in colour they must be present in great abundance. The rich green colour in these aventurine stones is the result of inclusions of the mineral fuchsite (fook-site) which is a chromium-rich mica.
Some argue that because of the large percentage of other minerals present in aventurine quartz it would be more accurate to refer to it as a rock not a mineral.
