Stories and legends


Aventurine belongs to the quartz family. It has different colors due to the presence of mineral or metallic inclusions. Green aventurine has this beautiful color due to the presence of fuchsite, a mica rich in chromium. Brown aventurine is colored by pyrite, red aventurine by hematite and blue by dumortierite.

Etymology and history

Green Aventurine is a stone that has been around for millennia. However, its name was given to it in the 17th century by Murano glassmakers. The glassmakers made their glass in Venice and were the cause of numerous fires. Also, to protect the city, they decided to emigrate to the island of Murano. One day, a glassmaker accidentally spilled copper flakes into the molten glass. The result was impressive: the glass sparkled due to the presence of copper. It was called aventurine glass, because in Italian, “a ventura” means luck. The mineral stone aventurine has this shiny and glittery appearance and therefore owes its name to this strange discovery.

In France, we find traces of green aventurine at the end of the 17th century in the writings of Madame de Maintenon, first governess of the children of Louis XIV then his secret wife. She describes a rosary that is made of this beautiful green stone.

For millennia, aventurine has been used and is found throughout different civilizations. Thus, its presence was confirmed in ancient Egypt.

During the time of ancient China, around 4,000 years ago, the Chinese recognized green aventurine as the imperial Yu stone, associated with the goddess of pity, compassion and love. She also protected mothers and children.

Then, 2,000 years ago, among the Incas tribe, green aventurine was used to attract luck and abundance. The Tibetans decorated the eyes of their statues with this stone and they used it to correct certain vision defects. As for the Celts, green aventurine is a stone of spiritual elevation and knowledge.

More recently, the British Museum in London exhibits a statuette dating from less than 400 BC. It evokes a typical person from the Olmec civilization. This work measures approximately 30 cm and is carved from green aventurine.

In the 17th century, stones with brilliant reflections were called aventurine. But the distinction between natural aventurine and that produced by glassmakers is still difficult to establish with certainty.

At this time, a third aventurine became famous, that of Chinese or Japanese aventurine lacquers. By trying to reproduce it in France, we created magnificent varnishes with different varieties of aventurine. These are the famous Martin varnishes dating from 1728.
