Auralite 23

Auralite 23

A relatively new find from the "Cave of Wonders", 800km north of Thunder Bay in the Boreal Forest of Ontario in Canada. From deposits over 1.5 billion years old, the Meso-proterozoic age. This makes it one of the oldest crystals ever found. 


X-ray diffraction has been used to identify 23 minerals, though much of the crystal comprises amethyst, citrine and a rare green quartz type. The high percentage of metals in auralite is believed to be a result of ancient meteorites (containing rare metallic ores) that crashed into the Earth. Over time, these elements dissolved and seeped into the earth, becoming concentrated in certain locations. The presence of gold supports this idea.


Formed with intricate etching and attractive chevron phantom banding. Auralite 23 possesses the properties of its constituent minerals plus unique properties resulting from their synergy. It also enhances and magnifies the energies of other crystals in proximity to it, especially (but not limited to) those that are in it.


There is some disagreement as to the exact composition of auralite, but all agree it usually contains at least 23 minerals, but never less than 17.


Titanite, cacoxenite, lepidocrosite, ajoite, hematite, magnetite, pyrite, goethite, pyrolusite, gold, silver, platinum, nickel, copper, iron, limonite, shpalerite, covellite, chalcopyrite, gialite, epidote, bornite, and rutile.


The Gemological Institute of America, which specializes in identifying inclusions in diamonds, have had samples of auralite 23 for nearly two years. They had never seen gold traces in amethyst before. Their labs agreed with previous tests but felt they may be incomplete, giving the following list of 35 elements.


Silver (Ag), Gold (Au), Aluminum (Al), Barium (Ba), Beryllium (Be), Bismuth (Bi), Calcium (Ca), Cadmium (Cd), Cobalt (Co), Chromium (Cr), Copper (Cu), Iron (Fe), Mercury (Hg), Potassium (K), Lanthanum, (La), Magnesium (Mg), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum (Mo), Sodium (Na), Nitrogen (N), Phosphorous (P),  Lead (Pb), Palladium (Pd), Sulfur (S), Antimony (Sb), Scandium (Sc), Strontium (Sr), Thorium (Th), Titanium (Ti), Thalium (Tl), Uranium (U), Vanadium (V), Tungsten (W), Zinc (Zn) and Zirconium (Zr).


"If one is fortunate enough to become an Earth-keeper for a quartz crystal containing gold, the uses are extensive. The properties of gold and quartz crystal are combined and produce "dynamite" results."


Auralite is a transformational crystal. It enhances healing, personal development, intuition and all types of energy work. It can be used on all chakras with excellent results and is said to initiate and/or awaken kundalini energy.


"Auralite feels like a dissolving of one’s cares and worries  - a release of patterns of anxiety, resentment, judgment, depression and defeat.  As this dissolution occurs, one feels an upliftment of one’s spirit and an awakening to the potentialities for a new life. This rising of optimism and new hope is felt all the way into one’s cellular consciousness. The body itself is awed and made reverent by the clearing of the veils of illusion and the dawning of the presence of one’s true self, one’s Higher Self.” Robert Simmons, "Stones of the New Consciousness”.

out of the 23 minerals which ones are more toxic than others? after noting that there is barium mercury lead sulfur uranium etc. does this mean you'd have to handle with care or kept in a sealed box when not in use ? and just a note to say i am so happy with the of the recent crystals ordered from kachastones. thankyou.

These minerals, which you rightly identify as potentially dangerous, are in such tiny amounts that they pose no threat to health and can be handled normally. And even those tiny amounts will only have a tiny percentage on the surface to come in contact with the skin.

I occasionally visit a hydrotherapy health spa in Hungary where some of the benefits are attributed to low level radiation in the natural spring water.

Actually the benefit derived from healing crystals comes primarily from handling them so it is recommended.
