Aventurine is a type of quartz. It varies from translucent to opaque and has small inclusions that give the stone a little bit of sparkle. The stone’s name comes from the Italian word “ventura” for “chance”.
Aventurine is known as the stone of chance or luck and opportunity. Old folk tales say you should keep a piece of aventurine in your left pocket to bring you luck, especially if you are gambling. A legend from ancient Tibet says that aventurine was used to improve nearsightedness and health and to increase the wearer's creativity.
