To many Aventurine is a powerful healer and some have called it the "Healer of the Heart and the Soul."
According to believers in the power of stones and crystals, Aventurine’s strongest mental healing characteristic is its ability to ground an individual emotionally, thus allowing for thought that is free of fear, troubled emotions, indecisiveness, and anxiety. This clarity of mind and self confidence that result from wearing this powerful stone energize, inspire, motivate and enhance one’s ability to relate to others on an emotional level. It is a stone for leaders, for protectors and counselors; wear it when making critical decisions, when anxious or when feeling overwhelmed by life’s problems and it will amplify your ability to focus and find creative solutions.
Aventurine and the Chakras
Aventurine has the ability to heal emotional pain/fear/imbalance by balancing and stabilizing male and female energies located within certain Chakra areas. Aventurine is related to and found to heal and align ailments of the 4th Chakra, which is the Chakra associated with the heart.
Amethyst aides the 4th Chakra, the Heart, by providing protection against individuals attempting “energy theft” from this source. The Heart Chakra relates to love and emotional well-being, aids in the ability to love and attract those who are also able to love. Blockages of the 4th Chakra can cause indecisiveness, fear and anxiety. Common physical symptoms can include heart and lung ailments.
Many believe Aventurine to be the best all around healing stone, because, along with the many mental benefits of Aventurine healing, there are also many physical healing powers that followers of Alternative Medicine attribute to the stone. While its primary physical healing function is to heal afflictions of the heart and lungs and adrenal system, healers also consider Aventurine helpful in the treatment of fevers, inflammation, nervous system stress and migraines, eye ailments, blood pressure abnormalities, hypertension and urogenital disorders.
