While a beautiful gemstone, Aventurine is not widely recognized. 'Green Jade' Aventurine is a semi-translucent to opaque soft green gemstone comprised of the minerals feldspar and quartz. Due to its appearance, it's frequently confused with or misrepresented as jade; hence, the commonly used label 'Green Jade' Aventurine. Aventurine can vary in color and shade and is frequently found in orange, yellow and even silvery tones. As the diameter of the cut or stone increases, the buyer should expect the color to be a little bit deeper.
