Primary Uses: Green Aventurine is known as the “Stone of Opportunity,” thought to be the luckiest of all crystals, especially in manifesting prosperity and wealth or for increasing favor in competitions or games of chance. Its winning energy makes it a great ally for boosting one’s chances in any situation – a first date, tax audit, or even landing a promotion. One needs only to be near it to derive its benefits.
This beautiful stone, however, is not merely an attractor of luck but one that aligns conditions, so “opportunity” is inevitable. Green Aventurine releases old patterns, habits, and disappointments so new growth can occur. It brings optimism and a zest for life, allowing one to move forward confidently and embrace change. It enhances creativity and motivation and encourages perseverance in maneuvering life’s obstacles. It also reinforces one’s decisiveness and amplifies leadership qualities, injecting a sense of humor and openness to the ideas of others.

Aventurine is a zodiac stone for those born under the sign Virgo, at the end of summer and the beginning of harvest, between August 23 and September 22. Aventurine is also a traditional stone for those born under the sign of Libra between September 23 and October 22, the middle of the harvest.
For Chakra Balancing: Green Aventurine is associated with the Heart Chakra, located near the center of the breastbone. It regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the heart chakra is out of balance, you may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship and become critical of the little foibles of others.
