Green aventurine has been shaped into a heart and highly polished to show off its natural beauty. Puffy hearts make thoughtful gifts as wedding favours, valentines gifts, mother's day presents or just because.
Green aventurine is translucent green quartz with chrome mica inclusions. Often mistaken for jade. Once thought to draw out the heat of fevers, inflammation and nervous system stress. Green aventurine is a popular meditation and healing stone and is said to promote tranquility, positive attitudes, health and well-being.
The heart has long been used as a symbol to refer to the spiritual, emotional, moral and in the past, the intellectual core of a human being. As the heart was once widely believed to be the seat of the human soul, the word heart continues to be used poetically to refer to the soul and stylized depictions of hearts are used as prevalent symbols representing love.
