Blue Aventurine Healing properties

Introduction and meaning 


Blue Aventurine combines the elements of Wind and Water in a gentle stone that resonates from the mind to the heart, working calmly, rationally, and steadily. It enhances the masculine energy in both males and females, and is a stone of self-discipline and inner strength, assisting one in making clear decisions and sticking by them. It promotes taking full responsibility for one’s life, relationships and experiences, while lending the support needed to empower change when the current reality isn’t working.

Blue Aventurine is particularly stimulating to the Third Eye and Throat Chakras, opening one to higher spiritual guidance, and revealing psychic and intuitive abilities that may previously have been blocked. It encourages open and honest communication and speaking one’s mind and heart. This crystal not only embodies strength, but honours peace and caring for others. It is a stone sacred to the Glory Angel, Raphael - the ruler of Mercury and the Angel of Compassion, Knowledge, Progress, Repentance and Love.

Aventurine is a variety of Quartz characterized by bright inclusions of Mica or other minerals that give a shimmering or glistening effect to the stone, referred to as aventurescence, especially notable when tumbled or polished.

Aventurine is most commonly green, though it also forms in blue, red to reddish-brown, dusty purple, orange or peach, yellow, and silver gray. It is mostly translucent and often banded, but an overabundance of an included mineral may render it opaque. The color of Green Aventurine comes from Fushite particles within the Quartz, while shades of red, brown and orange are attributed to Hematite or Goethite inclusions. Peach and yellow Aventurine include Pyrite with their Mica crystals, Blue Aventurine contains inclusions of Dumortierite, while the purple variety is colored by Lepidolite.

Aventurine is also referred to as Adventurine, Avanturine, Aventurine Quartz, and Indian Jade. It is used not only in various forms for metaphysical purposes, but in jewelry, vases, bowls and figurines, as well as a number of applications such as landscaping stone, building stone, aquaria, and monuments.

Uses and Purposes

As a “take charge” and “stick to it” crystal, Blue Aventurine can be highly beneficial in overcoming bad habits, such as smoking, overeating, and substance-abuse, or in dissolving negative traits, such as selfishness and passive aggression.

Blue Aventurine is an exceptional crystal for those who never seem to grow up by helping them discover that one really can handle their own life successfully, and that adulthood is preferable to perpetual youth.

In the workplace, Blue Aventurine is a crystal of leadership and helps to earn respect. It assists in approaching new projects calmly and without nervousness.

Wear Blue Aventurine as jewelry, drink as an elixir, or hold as a worry stone for a calm, focused performance in sports competitions, musical events, or any public speaking engagement. It is an ideal ally for teachers, encouraging vision and inspiration, and aiding in expression and effective communication.

Blue Aventurine encourages adventure at any age and is a stone of travel, helping to make desired travel plans happen and for protection against travel interruption. Place in luggage or personal items to prevent loss, and to encourage safety on holidays or weekends away.

Physical Healing Energy

Blue Aventurine ameliorates pain and chronic stiffness, and may help in lessening muscle twitches, spasms and facial tics. It assists in calming hyperactivity, and enhances mental focus and concentration.

This crystal is beneficial in overcoming insomnia, lessens migraines and headaches, and aids the eyesight. It has a cooling effect and reduces fever; it is believed to relieve sinus problems, allergies, colds, coughs and congestion.

Blue Aventurine is useful in balancing hormones, especially for women, and supports healthy blood, and blood oxygenation. It reinforces venous and arterial walls, and is thought to strengthen the respiratory and circulatory systems of “blue babies.”

Emotional Healing Energy
Blue Aventurine helps calm and relax fiery emotions, allowing one to be less affected by external influences and to be more in control and at peace within oneself. It provides better focus and concentration, and lends the courage needed to take an honest look at how one’s thoughts and actions have affected their current reality, and how best to move forward in improving or continuing those patterns. By accepting responsibility for one’s own life, it makes it possible to reclaim personal power and bring about one’s own emotional healing and well-being.

Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy
Blue Aventurine resonates with the upper chakras, from the mind to the heart, and is especially stimulating to the Third Eye and Throat Chakras.

The Brow Chakra, also called the Third Eye, is the center of our perception and command. It directs our sight and everyday awareness of the world. Our consciousness is located here, and we relate to ourselves through this chakra. When the Brow Chakra is in balance our thoughts and internal communications within ourselves are healthy and vibrant. We are open to new ideas, dreams, and visions, and can control the flow of energy within all the chakras. The dark blue/purple crystals of indigo are used to treat imbalances of the Brow Chakra. It is a quiet color, one of mystery and wisdom and judgment.

The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, in essence, a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. When the Throat Chakra is in balance and open, it allows for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, bringing our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy flow of energy within the body and spirit. Blue crystal energy will unblock and balance the Throat Chakra. Darker shades of blue encourage the power of truth, while lighter shades carry the power of flexibility, relaxation, and balance.

Spiritual Energy


Blue Aventurine assists in opening one to their innate powers and sensitivities that may have been blocked by inner disharmony. By clearing the Throat and Third Eye Chakras, it allows one to perceive the spiritual gifts they may have been given and attune to guidance from the higher realms. One may find an increase in psychic and intuitive abilities, a capacity to empathetically “read” others, or a potential for receiving information from the Akashic record. Whether it is used in meditation, dream work, or simply kept in close proximity, Blue Aventurine provides the inner strength to explore these possibilities and the patience to see it through.  

Meditation with Blue Aventurine 
Though Blue Aventurine works gradually, it also works steadily and has a great capacity for psychic opening. It is quite useful in meditation as a transitional aid, and brings additional strength and focus to the energies of other stones. Place it upon the Third Eye in meditations, or sleep with one in the pillowcase for dream work.
