The inclusions that give this Aventurine its blue color is Dumortierite, so Blue Aventurine is often sold AS Dumortierite, but it is a combination of quartz, mica and trace Dumortierite. Blue Quartz and Blue Aventurine look very similar so it can be difficult to tell them apart, but Aventurine should have either some sparkle, or streaks of white mica visible to the eye.
