More About Tangerine Aura Rose Quartz:
Aura crystals are made by placing natural crystals into a vacuum chamber with vaporized metals for 12-18 hours. The “atomized” metal molecules then adhere to the surface of the crystal through an electrostatic process. They coat it, creating the beautiful display of colors with which we are all familiar. The thin metallic coating (generally less than 1 micron thick) cannot be scratched or rubbed off. This is because it has been molecularly bonded with the surface of the crystal.
Some healers prefer not to use these stones as they are not completely natural (i.e. they are a “man-encouraged” creation). However, others, including myself, consider these stones to be useful healing tools. I would go as far as saying they can be an improvement upon natural crystals. Although the process for making these stones is not carried out within the earth, the stones are made of all-natural components. There are no man-made or synthetic additives (such as plastics or dyes). Therefore, it seems as though the crystal simply acts as a natural amplifier to the metals bonded to it.
For example, Aqua Aura Quartz is Quartz that has been coated in pure, 24k Gold. The thin layer of Gold atoms on the surface of the Quartz would not generally be enough to use for healing purposes. However, the energy of the Quartz crystal enhances and amplifies the energy of the Gold to the extent that it can be successfully used for healing.
Crystal Healing is not meant to replace conventional medicine, but rather to complement and enhance it. Information within this site is metaphysical in nature and is by no means medical. Crystals should only be used with the understanding that they are not an independent therapy, but rather are just part of a holistic healing approach to wellness
