Today we thought we would cover a question we get asked many times in our retail stores: what does Angel and Aura Quartz mean?
Aura Quartz are magical & beloved crystals that harken to the ancient practice of alchemy and are a visual example of the wonders of the microscopic world we understand today. A blend of the scientific & the mystic, Aura Quartz is a crystal that represents what is possible when man & nature work in tandem. Aura Quartz began to gain recognition for its healing properties in the 80’s. Today, it is widely used in healing, energy work, and meditation. Aura Quartz is created through the technique of electrostatic bonding, which binds Quartz and another mineral like Gold or Platinum. Depending on what element is bonded, a rainbow of different crystal types can be created.
Aura Quartz is one the few man-altered crystals to be widely approved of and used by healers. While the process of creating Aura Quartz is done by man, the enchanting colour is a natural phenomenon and unlike dyed or synthetic crystals, Aura Quartz is altered in a way that is permanent. Essentially, a new crystal is created rather than just a colour effect. Each is made only of Quartz and the chosen mineral. For this reason, Aura Quartz is thought to retain the healing properties of Quartz and take on the properties of the mineral. Additionally, the particular type of Aura Quartz created has its own essence and character. Truly a crystal of synergy. Aura Quartz is a beautiful reminder of what strange miracles are possible within nature if we maintain our sense of wonder and desire for discovery.
Created with blend Platinum, Gold, Titanium & Silver, Angel Aura Quartz has an iridescent sheen that almost looks white. This clean, dreamy colour is the perfect canvas for rainbows and flashes of colours that appear when angled or in a beam of light. Like all Aura Quartz, Angel Aura Quartz is easy to fall in love with at first sight. Very visually engaging, Angle Quartz is one that you can’t help but explore, finding all of its colours and light. For this reason, it makes a wonderful stone for gazing, clearing the mind and meditation. Its energy is often described as loving, gentle and elevating. Similar to Clear Quartz, Angle Quartz is also considered an ‘all-healing’ crystal, beneficial to all Charkas and Zodiac signs. Its association with the spirit realm comes from its sublime, near-white colour and fine vibration.
