Aventurine crescent moon pendant hand-wrapped in Copper or Sterling Silver.
Most commonly found in shades of green, Aventurine is a multicolor stone. Known also as the "Stone of Opportunity", it is commonly believed to be a stone of great fortune and luck. Aventurine is said to help remove negativity and stimulate new personal growth, leaving opportunities in its wake, thus the idea that it creates a "wealth" of opportunity for the wearer. This stone also helps smooth over disagreements, applying a calming effect to strife. It is a stone of the Heart Chakra. Aventurine is the natural birthstone for Taurus, although not a traditional birthstone. Those born under the Virgo and Libra zodiac signs receive the most benefit from Aventurine.
In mythology and Tarot, the moon is about personal change, self-evolution, and spiritual growth, as well as intuition and the ebb and flow of life. The moon controls the tides, but it also influences our emotions and moods. It is a powerful celestial orb that can bring great influence in a person's life.
