There are a few stories of alchemist monks attempting to make gold (some are French Monks, some Italian Monks) and in the process either a monk or a general worker accidentally knocked some copper shavings into a pot of molten glass…hence to variations of how it came about its name. Historically known as Aventurine Glass (From the Italian ‘avventurina’ meaning “accidental”). The “recipe” was kept secret until sometime in the early 19th century when the information was shared and others began producing this beautiful ornament.
