The sparkles in green aventurine are perfectly natural, and come from the fuchsite mica that gives this form of quartz its green color. It’s a go-to stone for financial success, and luck of all kinds — so much so that it’s known as the “gambler’s stone.” Some people keep a piece of aventurine with them whenever they make a bet; this can mean either a literal trip a casino, or else simply the need to take on financial challenges: a job interview, a tax audit, or even just paying the bills. I’m afraid I was unable to find any miraculous firsthand reports about winners of megabucks lotteries who carried a chunk of aventurine in their pocket or bra; the closest thing was a seller of overpriced jewelry who claimed to have a friend who did better than break even at Vegas. But in magic and metaphysics, intention is everything, and carrying or wearing aventurine can help you remember your career and financial goals — and, in the process, do the things necessary to attain them.
