Geological Properties and History
Purple Aventurine gets its purple color from inclusions of purple mica. This quartz-based gemstone is known for its bright inclusions and glistening or shimmering effect. Purple aventurine is created when hematite or goethite is present instead of fuchsite.
Aventurine has been discovered as beads, talismans and tools in archaeological digs as far back as the Omo Valley in Africa Humans have been using aventurine for a very long time. Aventurine's superiority for tool-making is due to its hardness and the inherent brittleness which makes it easy to shape.
Aventurine is found in Europe, India, Chile, Tanzania, Brazil, China, Nepal, Tibet and Russia.
