"A Ventura" - hit or miss, this Italian phrase gave the green aventurine its name, which the glassblowers of Italy gave it. They drew a comparison with their work, in which they imitated the wonderful shine of aventurine by randomly adding different substances, which it also receives from randomly present particles during its formation. This natural effect is known as aventurescence. In popular belief, aventurine is associated with calm and serenity and is a symbol of balance. In addition, it traditionally represents harmony and joie de vivre.
