Aventurine is a member of the quartz family, along with carnelian, amethyst, and citrine. It is commonly found in a forest green color like the photo here. Aventurine's meaning has a lot to do with its reputation as the "Stone of Opportunity." The stone seemingly imparts a winning attitude and energy to those in posession of it as well as naturally improving the likelihood of success in all areas of their lives. This green quartz is ideal for any situation from a first date, to getting that long sought after promotion at work. The wandering Wizard should keep a stone near by for those situations where an added dose of luck just might be needed.
