Aventurine is a kind of quartz. It usually comes in green from pale green to a medium green color. It is said to stand for perseverance and inspires compassion, empathy, and emotional calm. Lovely. There are days at work I could use the inspiration. 😉
However, I bought this for its color. Spring was in full bloom during our visit to the National Parks. When I saw this light green stone, I immediately thought of Spring. I thought, it will be a good reminder of my Spring trip to Kentucky and Tennessee.
