Origin and History
Etymologically, the name aventurine comes from the Italian “ventura,” meaning good fortune, luck, or chance. This is in reference to how aventurine’s unique essence was first discovered in the 18th century. Legend has it that Venetian glass workers accidentally dropped copper filings into a vat of molten glass. When the batch of glass cooled, it had magnificent, iridescent sparkles randomly scattered throughout. The name “aventurine” was later given to the natural stone, as it beared a strong resemblance to this glass.
