Green Aventurine is known as the Lucky Talisman or Stone of Opportunity for its good luck properties. Bringing along prosperity, leadership, empathy, and perseverance. Known to help with neuroses.
Native Americans believed that the souls of the animals still lived in the parts of the animal, so the wearer of the jewelry would have traits of that animal while wearing the beads, and the souls of the animals could live on. The bone beads were dyed with tea for color, thus creating dark beads and light beads for contrast.
