Rough Chunks of Green Aventurine
Large green aventurine stones from our collection of crystals rocks and minerals. These exceptionally colourful crystals could almost be large pieces 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, platy is a term used to describe inclusions of other minerals which are small and flat hence shaped similar to a plate. They tend to have a flaky appearance and when light reflects off their surface they give the stone a sparkly appearance, this appearance 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. The presence of other minerals is what causes its change of colour but to be effective they must be present in great abundance. The lush colour seen in green aventurine 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 it would be more accurate to refer to it as a rock instead of a mineral.
These eye-catching green aventurine crystals come in a hand-made gift pouch and are a great gift (especially as a stocking filler) for kids who love rocks and minerals.
Our green aventurine crystals come in two sizes but even so, weights and sizes do vary slightly from piece to piece. For this reason should you choose to purchase more than one stone you may find you are charged very slightly more for postage than we end up paying. Should this be the case any difference will be refunded once your order has been dispatched.
