Aventurine is a beautiful quartz stone. It occurs in various colours but green is the most sort after colour.
These are beautiful translucent, natural green cryptocrystalline stones that have not been tumbled or polished.
Aventurine is a form of quartz, characterised by its translucency and the presence of platy mineral inclusions that give a shimmering or glistening effect termed aventurescence. These stones get their green colour from the inclusion of platy chrome-bearing fuchsite (a variety of muscovite mica). Aventurine is not the same as green quartz as green quartz doe not contain chrome-bearing fuchsite.
The chemical formula of quartz is SiO2 (as it is a form of crystalline silica). Quartz has a trigonal crystal structure and can be macro-crystalline or cryptocrysalline.
