Auralite Amethyst, handpicked from the boreal forest of Northwestern Ontario, Canada. This particular variant of Chevron Amethyst can only be found in Canada and absolutely nowhere else. It is unique to the specific locality because of its natural concoction and origin. These specimens are thought to be 1.2-1.5 billion years old, and had begun to form after several meteoric impacts within the region. Both earthly and cosmic elements were infused within the matrix during formation.
This Amethyst is also often known as “Auralite-23”. You would have read that 23 different types of minerals might have been identified amongst the collective, but it is extremely rare for a single matrix to contain all of the specified minerals. Out of the listed minerals, a single crystal matrix contains only about 2-7 of them. The crystal itself is purple Amethyst and the minerals that are often easily observed include golden goethite, black goethite, hematite, limonite etc. Sometimes, you may identify citrine and prasiolite. Some other precious minerals that are not visible to the naked eye include gold, silver, platinum etc.
AURALITE AMETHYST WAND
Distinct chevrons layer along the length of the specimen. Like tree rings, they are indicative of the age of the crystal.
BLACK-TIP AURALITE AMETHYST
Auralite points with a coating of black hematite is rarer than those with red hematite.
EMERALD AURALITE (PRASIOLITE AMETHYST)
Rare. Having exposed to high geothermal heat, portions of the Amethyst have transformed into Citrine (yellow) and Prasiolite (green).
