Green Aventurine has a trigonal crystal system and is a member of the Quartz family. Its sparkly, green appearance comes from deposits of Fuchsite (chromium mica). Red and blue varieties are available as well.
Green Aventurine has been found to have a natural affinity with the thymus gland, so it’s not surprising that it helps to promote proper growth during the first seven years of a child’s development. Its ability to soothe and balance seems to have a very positive influence during a child’s period of constant discovery and stimulation. Because it is a gentle healer, whether child or adult, it imparts a positive influence in every aspect of life.
