Where it's found: Most of the green and blue aventurine can be found in India. Yellow, orange, white and grey Aventurine is found in Spain, Russia, and Chile.
Variations, Rarity and Value: The aventurescence in Aventurine is the sheen that comes from the chrome-bearing fuchsite. It can be found in colours ranging from orange, yellow, blue, gray, white and brown, but it is most often found to be green. Yellow Aventurine is a bit more rare than Green, but it is still very affordable. It also has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale which means it’s easy to cut into shapes and make into jewelry.
