Aura Quartz is one of the most enchanting stone families, but they are sometimes not well understood. I wanted to bring you some illumination on these gorgeous and powerful stones, because I really adore them and the mystical energy they provide.
Aura quartzes are a combination of nature’s gifts and manmade alchemy. Using heat and vaporization, metal dust is bonded to the exterior of quartz crystals--quartz being an amazing healer and a powerful magnifier--this creates a potent combination crystal that has intense, but subtle powers. Aura quartzes vibrate at an uncommonly high frequency, which means that they are strong allies in connecting with the higher self, and integrating our spiritual and physical bodies.
There are many types of aura quartz, and each has its own unique properties and strengths. Let me go over some of my favorites, the ones I work with regularly in my shop and that are repeatedly requested by my clients.
Rainbow Titanium Aura Quartz
This gorgeous stone is created from quartz bonded with gold and titanium to create a metallic rainbow. The vibrational energy and color of Rainbow Aura has the ability to heal the human energy field and activate all energy centers. It facilitates deep meditation and spiritual attunement. Overall, this crystal is one that brings insight, compassion, energy, excitement and joy into life’s experiences. It is capable of carrying higher frequency range and grounding higher States of consciousness. Turn to this stone when you need to connect with your higher self, or want to heal generational or karmic trauma.
Ruby Aura Quartz
This deeply red stone is created with platinum and gold bonding. It brings love, passion, and vitality into your life. This is a particularly powerful stone for women, activating the heart’s wisdom, and cleansing the base chakra of lingering survival issues. It also provides protection and healing from both past and current abuse or violence. It does this by vibrating at a frequency that transmutes rage and resentment, and creating a spiritually uplifting energy. It also connects to Christ consciousness (whether you are a follower of the Christian religion or not, you can connect to Christ consciousness, do not worry!) Turn to this stone for protection and healing of physical trauma from this or past lives, or to heal physical ailments like sciatica or slipped discs that manifest in the lower body.
Rose Aura Quartz
This quartz is bonded with platinum and silver, and is a soft rose pink. It is similar to Ruby Aura Quartz, but is more deeply connected with the heart chakra. This stone stimulates the heart and the pineal gland to provide transmutation for negativity surrounding self-image and self-worth, which makes it useful for women in modern society, as we often must work very hard to counteract the images and messages from the advertising industry that tell us we are never enough. Rose Aura Quartz connects us with not only our sense of self-worth, but our worthiness to receive Universal love, which is absolute. It is a wonderful stone for puberty and turbulent teenage years, when self-identity is formed, and balance is sorely needed. Turn to this stone for relief of hormonal issues associated with puberty and menarche, with pregnancy, especially for teen mothers, and for emotional healing, and reconnection with your inviolable self-worth.
Sunshine Aura Quartz
This quartz lives up to its name, with a sunny yellow created through gold and platinum bonding. This stone heals the hurts and traumas of your soul, and helps you to connect with your joyous inner child. It can also help you overcome a sense of disappointment or bitterness with your life path. Sunshine quartz also infuses the whole system with health and energy. It provides spiritual protection, while also inspiring expansion, optimism,and spontaneity. Physically, it connects with the solar plexus, and helps with digestive troubles, or issues with the kidney, liver or spleen. Turn to this stone to help bring laughter and light back to your life, or to clear out the toxic, and bring in the joy.
Tangerine Aura Quartz
This is another sunny crystal, though it comes in a more citrus-y orange hue that comes from a combination of gold and iron. This crystal is dynamic, and the energy helps you connect to your higher self, and guides. It is a beautiful choice for spiritual seeking and exploration. Tangerine quartz can help lighten dark moods, and face life’s challenges with the spirit of optimism. It’s a sister to Sunshine Aura Quartz, and has a similar sunny energy, but the light of Tangerine Aura helps illuminate all of your lower chakras, connecting your with your strength, creativity, and sensuality. Turn to this stone to help you expand your spiritual horizons, connect with your inner artist, or bring some new light and heat to your intimacy.
Apple Aura Quartz
This stone is a creation of bonding quartz with nickel, and has the brightness of a shimmery green apple candy. This crystal is a stunning ally for physical health, and is especially potent in boosting the spleen, the immune system, and in purifying the blood. Spiritually and emotionally, apple aura assists with letting go and severing lingering psychic ties with former romantic partners, or others whose physical presence is gone, but whose emotional connection remains. Turn to this stone to bring your physical body into balance, and to let go of any energy that drains you or holds you back.
Angel Aura Quartz
This soft blue stone is created with platinum and silver bonding. It carries a loving sweet energy, stimulating the spirit and elevating the mood. It allows you to enter a state of serenity and peace, purification and rest, and to go beyond the body to receive help from one’s angel guides, especially when you use it in meditation. Angel Aura can also help you connect with your spiritual purpose, or life path. It is a wonderful aid for perceiving beauty in all things and living in the present moment. Turn to Angel Aura Quartz to help in connection and communication--especially spiritual communication; to appreciate and manifest beauty, and to heal the nervous system, especially issues with anxiety and phobias.
Aqua Aura Quartz
This sky blue iridescent stone is created with gold bonding. It is one of the most popular aqua quartzes, because of its calming and relaxing properties. It gently releases negativity and helps to unblock repressed emotions. It also stimulates the throat chakra, which allows those emotions to be expressed and released in healthy ways. This crystal facilitates attunement. It also safeguards against emotional drain and negativity that originates from contact with other people's’ energy fields. When used during meditation it provides unparallelled peace, which can allow access to interdimensional communication, particularly access to angelic realms. Use this stone to speak your truth, free yourself from limitations, and for conscious channeling.
Tanzine Aura Quartz
Created with indium and gold bonding, this stone is a combination of blue and purple, like natural tanzanite, for which it is named. Tanzine Aura Quartz helps to connect the highest and lowest chakras, which can bring connection and healing throughout your energetic body. This stone is great for dissolving emotional blockages, and opening yourself to unconditional love from sources both spiritual and personal. Tanzine Aura Quartz fosters connection with others, and centeredness within yourself. Turn to this stone during meditation for integration and clarity, and to connect with the Archangel Raziel, who governs mysteries and esoteric knowledge.
