The Dalmatian Stone appeals to the child within us all, fortifying the spirit and encouraging a sense of playfulness. It is particularly beneficial for those who are overly analytical, returning some of the intellectual carefulness back into the physical joy of simply being. It has a grounding energy, supportive of family and loyalty, and has a calming influence for children and animals. Aventurine is often called the heart healer because of its relation to the Heart Chakra. It is one of the most renowned stones when it comes to the vibration it produces. It has a common bond with the word 'chance' (because of its etymology).
