HISTORY

Green aventurine was first discovered in the 18th century; the Italian Word "ventura" meaning "aleatory". It refers to the way it was discovered, by chance, by the synthesis of the crystal of aventurine or goldstone, which is an artificial stone very similar to the aventurine stone in the 18th century. It would be an Italian glass artisan who would have had some copper fall in the melted glass and would have created this new crystal by accident.

The aventurine can have other names such as Prase. This Greek word means "leek" and refers to its green colour. A legend from ancient Tibet says that aventurine was used to improve nearsightedness and to increase the wearer's creativity. 

It has also been associated with various goddesses of fertility, nature, and spring, across multiple cultures. Including the southeast Asian Buddhists, the Greeks, and the Celts, because of its green coloration.
