Virgos are rational, organized, practical, and analytical. These qualities, however, come with a disadvantage: over-analysis. Virgos can experience an “analysis paralysis,” which means that the over-thinking and over-analyzing of everything is to the extent that it leaves you unable to make decision.
For the detailed-thinking Virgo, Aventurine is the perfect match! At times when you get overwhelmed by your rational side, use Aventurine to make you more decisive!
The name Aventurine is derived from the Italian word a ventura or all’avventura which means “by chance.” The meaning refers to the Italian glass that was created “by chance” in the 18th century: when a worker accidentally dropped metal fillings into a melting glass vat, it turned out to be a very pretty sparkling glass. This was then used as decoration for object and to make jewelry. Since the stone resembled this manufactured glass, the name Aventurine was given to it.
