Blue Aventurine combines the elements of Wind and Water in a gentle stone that resonates from the mind to the heart, working calmly, rationally, and steadily. It enhances the masculine energy in both males and females, and is a stone of self-discipline and inner strength, assisting one in making clear decisions and sticking by them. It promotes taking full responsibility for one’s life, relationships and experiences, while lending the support needed to empower change when the current reality isn’t working. [Simmons, 57][Ahsian, 57][]


Blue Aventurine is particularly stimulating to the Third Eye and Throat Chakras, opening one to higher spiritual guidance, and revealing psychic and intuitive abilities that may previously have been blocked. It encourages open and honest communication and speaking one’s mind and heart. This crystal not only embodies strength, but honors peace and caring for others. It is a stone sacred to the Glory Angel, Raphael - the ruler of Mercury and the Angel of Compassion, Knowledge, Progress, Repentance and Love. [Simmons, 57][Eason, 235]


Aventurine is a variety of Quartz characterized by bright inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give a shimmering or glistening effect to the stone, referred to as aventurescence, especially notable when tumbled or polished. Its name is derived from the Italian a ventura or all’avventura, meaning “by chance,” and refers to the Italian glass from the 1700s, produced when a worker accidentally dropped metal filings into a vat of melting glass. Once cooled, the result was pleasing with its randomly spaced iridescent sparkles, and it was used to make jewelry and other items. The name Aventurine was later given to the natural stone which looked like the industrial product. [][Megemont, 36][Simmons, 55]


Aventurine is most commonly green, though it also forms in blue, red to reddish-brown, dusty purple, orange or peach, yellow, and silver gray. It is mostly translucent and often banded, but an overabundance of an included mineral may render it opaque. The color of Green Aventurine comes from Fushite particles within the Quartz, while shades of red, brown and orange are attributed to Hematite or Goethite inclusions. Peach and yellow Aventurine include Pyrite with their Mica crystals, Blue Aventurine contains inclusions of Dumortierite, while the purple variety is colored by Lepidolite. [Gienger, 17][][][]


As a “take charge” and “stick to it” crystal, Blue Aventurine can be highly beneficial in overcoming bad habits, such as smoking, overeating, and substance-abuse, or in dissolving negative traits, such as selfishness and passive aggression. [Simmons, 57]

Blue Aventurine is an exceptional crystal for those who never seem to grow up by helping them discover that one really can handle their own life successfully, and that adulthood is preferable to perpetual youth. [Simmons, 57]

In the workplace, Blue Aventurine is a crystal of leadership and helps to earn respect. [Eason, 235] It assists in approaching new projects calmly and without nervousness. [Gienger, 17] 

Wear Blue Aventurine as jewelry, drink as an elixir, or hold as a worry stone for a calm, focused performance in sports competitions, musical events, or any public speaking engagement. [Eason, 235] It is an ideal ally for teachers, encouraging vision and inspiration, and aiding in expression and effective communication. [Ahsian, 57]

Blue Aventurine encourages adventure at any age and is a stone of travel, helping to make desired travel plans happen and for protection against travel interruption. Place in luggage or personal items to prevent loss, and to encourage safety on holidays or weekends away. [Eason, 42, 235]


Blue Aventurine honors Kuan-Yin, the Chinese Goddess of Mercy, Compassion, and Unconditional Love. She is the most beloved of the Chinese goddesses and is regarded by many as the protector of women and children, and champion of the unfortunate.


Blue Aventurine helps calm and relax fiery emotions, allowing one to be less affected by external influences and to be more in control and at peace within oneself. It provides better focus and concentration, and lends the courage needed to take an honest look at how one’s thoughts and actions have affected their current reality, and how best to move forward in improving or continuing those patterns. By accepting responsibility for one’s own life, it makes it possible to reclaim personal power and bring about one’s own emotional healing and well-being. [Ahsian, 57]


Blue Aventurine assists in opening one to their innate powers and sensitivities that may have been blocked by inner disharmony. By clearing the Throat and Third Eye Chakras, it allows one to perceive the spiritual gifts they may have been given and attune to guidance from the higher realms. One may find an increase in psychic and intuitive abilities, a capacity to empathetically “read” others, or a potential for receiving information from the Akashic record. Whether it is used in meditation, dreamwork, or simply kept in close proximity, Blue Aventurine provides the inner strength to explore these possibilities and the patience to see it through. [Simmons, 57]
