These are delightful and cute plates shaped into the triple goddess or triple moon symbol.
*All three plates have been uniquely marked down in price since there are small defects visible on the body of the stones.
The material of these plates is Green Aventurine, known as the "Stone of Opportunity".
It is a variety of green aventurine from Pakistan. It is known for its lush green color that can range from muted sage greens to deep leafy greens. However, the hallmark texture of green aventurine is grainy (subtle or stark in appearance) and full of shimmery inclusions called mica. The shimmery effect is called aventurescence. Spotted areas of the stone are often semi-translucent, as well.
Green aventurine symbolizes good luck, wealth, prosperity, intelligence, creativity, broad perception, opportunities, success, fortune, abundance, growth, strength, calmness, connections, emotional protection, decision-making, leadership, holistic pursuits, relaxation and revitalization.
It is aligned with the heart chakra, the elements of water and earth, the season of spring and the zodiac signs of Cancer and Virgo.
