In China, Aventurine has been used as a lucky talisman and is a popular stone for gamblers. Many believe that aventurine has the capacity to calm a troubled spirit and bring about inner peace. We can't vouch for mythology but we're feeling pretty peaceful right now...just looking at this beautiful necklace made of natural stone. It's a long strand of large 12mm aventurine beads, embellished along the way with carved twisted adventurine beads and ribbed 14K gold-filled balls. But it gets even better...there's a large carved pendant that's in the shape of a pottery jug.
The necklace measures 33 inches around. The pendant measures 1 1/4 by 2 3/4 inches. The color is just fantastic. It looks like jade. It looks like spring. It looks like a mint julep. The beads shift from opaque to translucent. There's a secure clasp though you don't need it...this slips easily over the head.
Aventurine is a natural stone...a variety of chalcedony which is a poly-crystalline quartz. Sounds very gemologisty...all we know is this is one big beautiful necklace.
