These Green Aventurine gemstone beads are a smooth aloe green color, and they flatter almost every skin tone. The most common color of aventurine is green, but the stone can also be found in shades of red, orange, brown, yellow, blue, and gray.
Aventurine is a form of quartz, characterized by its translucency and the presence of platy mineral inclusions that give a shimmering or glistening effect. This shimmering effect is called “aventurescence”. Chrome-bearing fuchsite (a variety of muscovite mica) is the classic inclusion, and gives a silvery green or blue sheen.
