Creative Metalsmithing from Scratch with Kim St. Jean
Aventurine has a waxy luster, and are sometimes semitransparent or translucent. Aventurine even has an effect named after it; the shimmer it gives off is called aventurescence. Green aventurine is slightly softer than quartz, but has a bold presence that commands attention. Try an aventurine gem in a ring or delicate bracelet, or perhaps a larger green aventurine cabochon in a necklace or pendant.
