these stones were sold to me by a bead dealer in manhattan as aventurine.
so i kept calling them aventurine in marketing materials etc (aspiring jewelry designer here :)).
but upon running a google search for aventurine a while back, i have become suspicious of this claim.
the examples of aventurine returned by the search look nothing like these stones!
perhaps they're jasper?
any leads are greatly appreciated. i would love to learn more about stones!
