Yellow Aventurine Properties & Use | Crystal Gemstone Shop

Aventurine is a stone with a unique history, especially regarding the name. Now, you might be wondering: "Is yellow aventurine a real thing?" The answer is: yes. Yellow aventurine is natural and not man-made. We will get into the details on that in a moment.

More broadly, aventurine can actually appear in a wide variety of colors, and yellow is somewhat uncommon. Green and blue are the other two that people generally think of right away, but orange is another possibility.

So, where does this confusion come from? It comes from the fact that goldstone is also referred to as aventurine glass. Aventurine is believed to be named after this due to the similar appearance. But the main difference is that goldstone is man-made, but aventurine is not.

The reason why aventurine was compared to goldstone is because of the similarity of inclusions. Aventuresence is that metallic shimmer that you see in goldstone and in aventurine. The main difference however is that aventurine's is completely natural.

That does make it a little confusing, but once you remember that, it does make sense. However, while aventurine isn't man-made, this does not mean that all specimens are completely natural. The treatment and dying of any stone is extremely common.

Like every other type of aventurine, it does not have much industrial use. Its 6.5–7 hardness on the Mohs scale makes it a decent enough choice for jewelry. You've probably seen a good amount of yellow aventurine stone carvings, rings, pendants, and tumbled stones.

Yellow aventurine is a stone that ranges from a pale cream shade to mustard yellow, and may be semi-opaque. It gets its color from inclusions of muscovite or mica.
