Few can resist the beauty of Aura Quartz crystals with their shimmering iridescence and metallic rainbow sheen in colors that defy nature yet enchant the senses. Though artificially enhanced by modern techniques, these crystals utilize the ancient powers of alchemy and synergy. By electrostatically bonding precious metals from the Earth onto the surface of natural Clear Quartz points or clusters, a new, unified color layer is created, a permanent blend that intensifies the properties of the original elements, as well as emanating a unique spectrum of subtle energies on its own.[101 Hall, 40][Hall En, 143][Simmons, 33, 47][Eason, 243]
Aura Quartz crystals have been part of the New Age movement since the 1980’s, prized for their ability to expand the consciousness and heal the physical and spiritual body with their extraordinary high vibration. While most practitioners prefer natural, untreated stones for their metaphysical work, many consider Aura Quartz, with its pure components and synergistic energies, to be the exception to the rule.[Simmons, 33, 47][101 Hall, 40][Eason, 243]
The following is a list of some of the well-known varieties and their properties. It is by no means complete, as new combinations are continuously being created. All Aura Quartzes carry the general properties of Quartz, as well as the metal(s) with which it is paired.
Rainbow Aura Quartz - Clear Quartz bonded with Gold and Titanium; produces vivid multi-colored metallic crystals. Rainbow Aura activates all the energy centers in the body, clearing a path for the Life Force to manifest throughout the subtle bodies, bringing in a vibrant energy and zest for life. It is particularly supportive for those in dysfunctional relationships, by letting one see what lies ahead and helping to release negative emotions such as resentment or grief. It brings deep insights into one’s relationships at all levels, and aids letting go of karmic ties that may be hindering relationships in the current life. This transformed relationship then becomes vital and harmonious. Rainbow Aura is a master healer for any condition, and is highly beneficial in multidimensional cellular memory healing. It is an efficient receptor for programming and bringing the body into balance.[Hall, 230-231][Hall En, 144]
