This mineral is otherwise called aventurine feldspar. It is related to the moonstone and the labradorite. Its alkaline form sometimes contains small, scaly pieces of hematite, lepidocrocyte or goethite. They cause flickering, that is called aventurization effect. Thanks to this, this crystal has reflections in shades of yellow, red, sometimes even turning green. The sodium-calcium form has shades of orange, cream and dark brown.
This stone is primarily used for cleansing. Additionally, it is believed to energize all chakras. It interacts most intensively with the solar plexus chakra. It brings positive energy to all energy centres and protects the owner through its good vibrations and strengthens the emission of aura.
