Adventurine is a misspelling of aventurine (and sometimes known as goldstone) is a shimmering quartz stone that ranges in color from yellow to red to light green to light brown. The shimmer is caused by tiny metallic particles (mica) within the stone.

A variety of Quartz containing glistening fragments (usually mica), which can be cut and polished as a gemstone. Most commonly when the general public encounter this stone it is in the form of green stone beads that can be anywhere from a pale to a medium green colour. Frequently these beads have been treated with oil to make the stone look a darker colour than it would naturally or even dyed to make the colour more attractive. Aventurine can also be other colours but the most common colour is green. Aventurine is a general term that is used by different commercial interests to mean several different kinds of stones.
