Green Aventurine is a stone of optimism and zest for life. It helps one move forward with confidence into new situations, such as changes in one’s employment, residence, school, relationships or spiritual focus. It even assists one in embracing such challenging issues as ageing, illness and one’s own mortality. It is not a stone of resignation or acceptance so much as it is a facilitator of one’s taking everything in stride. It brings with it a feeling of lightness, even humour, as it assists one in dealing with the ups and downs of life.
In meditation, it helps one to persevere through the times when it seems as if nothing is happening. In emotional life, it allows one to look at the bright side of difficult issues. In healing, it instills life force and aids in rebuilding depleted energy reserves.
