Who doesn't love the sparkly goodness of good ole Green Aventurine? The name "aventurine" is derived from the word "aventurescence," which refers to the amount of metallic glitter within a mineral. Funny enough, the sparkle of the aventurine comes from quartz! The inclusions, primarily composed of chromium-rich fuchsite mica, are so dense that it ends up turning the quartz completely green. The inclusions sometimes resemble glitter and can even shimmer in the right light! Emerald and Jade may need to move over for this aventurine dream. There's a new green goddess in town, folks!
