    Aventurine is named for its resemblance to the well-known aventurine glass of Venice, Italy. Tradition has it that a Murano workman accidentally dropped some copper filings in molten glass, creating an attractive new material. And so the glass was named avventurino for the Italian word avventura, or “by chance.” Aventurine is a form of chalcedony (quartz) that contains small inclusions of various shiny minerals. Aventurine’s granular appearance and particular translucence are its most distinctive characteristics. Aventurine It occurs in several colors including green, red and blue.
