All crystals are beautiful and have a purpose in their natural form. Although there is one particular crystal that is enhanced by fusing it with pure gold – the Aqua Aura Quartz. A stunningly vibrant blue crystal with a shimmer of an iridescent rainbow on the surface, let’s discuss this crystal and help you understand its influence.
What is an Aqua Aura Quartz?
While Aqua Aura Quartz clusters are not found naturally in nature, they are created by vacuum heating clear crystal quartz to extremely high temperatures and bonding vapourised pure gold to the crystal. The high temperature allows the gold powder to fuse to the surface of the crystal, changing its colour and adding a unique shimmer.
The use of other metals such as platinum or silver will create similar Aura Crystals including Angel Aura, Apple Aura and Rose Aura to name just a few.
What makes the fusion of quartz and gold so special?
Aside from the striking appearance of the Aquamarine coloured crystal, the bonding of the gold to the clear quartz provides unique physical and spiritual benefits.
Pure gold has long been used to improve circulation and transport oxygen more effectively around the body. Combining the gold with the healing power of clear crystal quartz and you have a strong synergy that is both spiritually and physically healing.
What is Aqua Aura used for?
Aqua Aura Quartz is a healing stone and is used to open up the throat chakras, which can enhance your communication. The crystal will allow your heart to speak its truth and will raise your capacity to express your deepest emotions.
When performing a healing or cleansing ritual, the Aqua Aura Quartz can repair holes present in your aura while also providing psychic protection when you are at your most vulnerable.
While Aqua Aura crystals are not found in nature, they are naturally treated with heat and pure gold to create their unique colour.
As with many things, people have found a way to make cheap imitation versions called “Jelly Quartz” or “Jelly Aqua”. These cheaper crystals are made by spraying a Teflon coating to clear crystal quartz. Giving it the same visual effect as the real thing, but not the powerful spiritual qualities.
Genuine Aqua Aura Quartz will not scratch or tarnish, unlike the cheaper Jelly Quartz that will easily scratch and will wear off over time.
If you want to ensure your Aqua Aura is a genuine heat-treated crystal, hold it up to the light. If you see any fine scratches on the surface, lack of colour along the crystals edge or places where it looks like the colour has come away, it is more than likely a cheap imposter.
If your Aqua Aura is a genuine heat-treated crystal, you will still be able to see the fine lines and rougher details in the core of the quartz and the edges will be crisp, not rounded.
