The Wonders of Dark Green Aventurine

Our very own Michelle is intrigued by the benefits of Dark Green Aventurine. Today she talks about why she finds this sparkling green gem meaningfully noble—along with two ways it can be used to help ease pain.

Going Where It’s Needed Most

Dark Green Aventurine is one of our more fascinating gemstones. Light Green Aventurine and Dark Green Aventurine are essentially the same stone, but the abundant dark green flecks in the Dark Green variety give it a few unique properties. It is these flecks that work to dispel disharmonious energies from each of the body’s weakest organs, one by one, in order of need. Unlike other gems, Dark Green Aventurine’s wave-like energy rides into the body on the breath. Then it goes to work right where it needs to.
In other words, when you wear Dark Green Aventurine, its energy is naturally drawn to where it can best support. I love this aspect of the gem. Its very nature is to seek out where it will do the most good.

Two Ways to Ease Pain

Over the years I’ve heard many stories from people who describe receiving incredible pain relief while working with Dark Green Aventurine. When people ask me about gemstones for pain, it is Dark Green Aventurine that pops into my mind. On its own, the gem is drawn to work on your weakest organ. However, with a little effort, we can harness its wave-like energy to massage out pain from virtually any part of the body.
Here are two ways you can do this:
  • Direct its energy with Lavender: When you wish to soothe an extremity or other localized area, you can wear Dark Green Aventurine around your neck and place a Lavender necklace on the painful area. The Lavender aligns and opens the area to more life force and directs the Aventurine’s energy there. Read instructions for Directing Aventurine’s Benefits.
  • Use a helping hand: If you don’t have a Lavender necklace, you can cup your hand over the Aventurine while placing it on a painful area. This will awaken a unique property of Dark Green Aventurine that causes it to stream waves of its soothing energy deep into the area. Learn more about this Pain Relief technique.

A Word of Caution—and Encouragement

One of the more curious aspects of Dark Green Aventurine is its contraindications. It is true that wearing this gem as a necklace may not be for everyone. Because it shakes loose disharmonious energies from your organs, it is best not to wear it during or after taking toxic medications (like chemotherapy or radiation therapy). It’s also contraindicated if you have been exposed to extremely toxic conditions or have a history of substance use issues. The rapid release of those kinds of energies may be overwhelming for the body. In this case, it is better to first wear Light Green Aventurine for a more gradual upliftment.
However, even if you have had toxic exposures, you may still benefit from doing the two techniques described above or from the other focused treatments described on our Dark Green Aventurine webpage. Just remember to perform these techniques for shorter periods. Little doses can go a long way!
