I've never paid much attention to this lovely stone - till now that it is retired.
Could you please post pics of your Aventurines to show the variety  Very Happy
Can it still easily be found in shops?

My daughter & I both bought ours after it had been retired. You can see my Aventurine in my TB Day bead pic:

I just have one, but would love to find a darker one. Haven't seen any in shops near me lately.

WOW, gorgeous stones and great pics! TFS Hug
So it's a basically more opaque stone with lots of color variety.

I've finally spotted one in a small shop, that is downsizing (what else?) their store stock. Hopefully I am not too late to the party Very Happy

I have 6 green aventurine Trollbeads.  I started collecting them when I learned their meaning, healing energy, legendary uses, and metaphysical properties.  Here is one way I have used two of them.  More pictures will follow when I find the photos.  For now, I have found these photos.  Enjoy.  And I adore this post.  The green trollbeads aventurine is one of my favorite gemstones that they ever made.

I found a few more pictures, showing all 6 of my aventurine beads mixed with my Pink Russian Ambers and both medium and light golden quartz beads.  This is a bracelet that I rarely take apart.  I might "borrow" a bead or two from this bracelet once in a while to wear on another combination, but they always end up back on this bracelet in their designated spots!

These are my four, all very different. The one at 3 o'clock was my first, never found his look-a-like, and I searched a lot:-(

Thank you so much for the pics too, bubbagump and Tinka.
These are fabulous combos.

What a variety in color, Tinka.
You're right: the Aventurine at 3 o' clock is a special beauty!

This is a favorite with the old silvers and fantasy jaspers.
The aventurines and amethysts bring the jaspers to life.

I love coming back to drool over your stunning stones!
How could I miss the aventurine for so long?

I've just been lucky to find another pale one.
