Among the thirteen groups of beads I just received, one set is azure-blue with spiral trails of avventurina; and another is yellowish but clear with avventurina crumb spots. In both groups the avventurina tends to be thin or watery-looking. I had to check with a hand lens to be totally confident.

Since these beads are reputed to be from the 1990s, they don't provide any indication of avventurina use much prior to that time.
