Aventurine is a variety of the mineral quartz characterised by distinctive inclusions that give the stone a shimmering or glistening effect. Correctly known as aventurescence, this optical effect which can be seen in certain minerals is caused as light reflects off platy inclusions within the stone. The term platy is used to describe mineral inclusions with a plate-like shape which general means they're small and flat.
Although the mineral fuchsite (pron' fook~site) tends to be the most common, inclusions can also be lepidolite, hematite, goethite (pron' ger~tite) muscovite or ilmenite. When the platy inclusions are present in great abundance they have the ability to change the colour of the quartz. Green aventurine is caused by the presence of fuchsite which is a chromium rich mica.
The size of our green aventurine tumbled stones varies slightly from piece to piece but they're classified as a medium sized tumbled stone.
Empathic warrior crystals are stones which have at some point in time sustained some kind of damage, usually a chip or fracture.

Empathic warrior crystals are not always available and should this be the case, a refund will be issued before remaining items in the order are processed.
