Aventurine Beaded Earrings
Aventurine is actually a greenish quartz. It can vary in color from a pale translucent green to a dark opaque green. Aventurine's glistening effect comes from the small inclusions of shiny minerals. It was named for aventura, a type of Italian glass found by accident about 1700. The stones used in these earrings are more opaque than translucent and are paired alike.
