Auralite 23 Healing Properties

Auralite 23 straight from the Auralite 23 mine! These gorgeous little Amethysts have a variety of mineral inclusions that can be seen when held to a light or looked at under a magnifying glass. I know the mine owner personally (we brunch together at the Tucson Gem Show.) Sometimes he has something lovely I can buy directly from him. At other times, I buy from a tumbler who has high safety standards. These particular drum-tumbled Auralite 23 are a marvelous addition to any crystal collection.

Ethically Sourced Auralite 23

Know where your crystals come from

This Auralite 23 comes from the family-owned Auralite 23 mine in Ontario, Canada.  Canada is one of the few countries that has adopted environmentally-friendly and sustainable mining practices. Canada has one of the safest mining standards in the world.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Auralite 23 Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published September 2016  •  Updated June 2022  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Auralite 23 is a rare variety of Amethyst with up to 23 mineral inclusions.  It comes from small mines in the boreal forest of Canada and is similar to the Super Seven Amethysts found in Brazil.  Auralite 23’s name is a tribute to the beautiful aurora borealis, or Northern Lights, which dance across the sky above the mines during the winter.  While some metaphysical names are purely marketing grabs, Auralite 23 is a useful name from an ethical sourcing perspective since it helps identify a specific deposit.  […]

    Nice item

  6. Samantha S. (North Carolina) (verified owner)

    I had been intuitively pulled to find an Auralite 23 & my local shop doesn’t carry them. I happened to find Moonrise Crystal & I’m so glad I did. The more I read about her & her commitment to ethically sourced crystals, I knew I found the right person to purchase from. I’ll definitely make future purchases with Julie!

    Beautiful stone. Great energy.

    Great seller, package arrived on time and as said⭐️

    My Auralite 23 Amethyst arrived today. What an amazing variety of colors, clarities, cloudinesses and refracting rainbows it holds! I see a dark purple, a soft, dreamy purple, a pronounced chevron in purple and clear/white, and one end is gorgeously mingled Amethyst and red Hematite. I’ve been taking time out and looking at it all afternoon, yet I still see something new with each look. This crystal’s good size and wonderful shape for holding add to its very definite presence. All the crystals I get from you are beautiful, but this one feels like it’ll turn out to be a very special one indeed.

    Beautiful stone. Best value I could find online: best quality for best price. She helped me pick out the perfect one. It’s a dark stone, but under light, you can discover different colors, minerals and inclusions. Super neat. I’ve been intrigued by Auralite 23 and wanted one for myself. It’s high vibrational, for sure. I can really its presence: kind of heavy, strong, in a wise and powerful way. Can be slightly overwhelming at first. We’re still getting acquainted with one another :) Thanks for the tea, Julie! Phenomenal seller. Thank you Julie! You can really trust her. She’s knowledgeable, honest, and just a kind and generous soul. Check out her Feel Loved Program! Through this quick transaction, I’ve gotten just a glimpse into her wonderful heart full of compassion. Thank you, Julie! I will be back :)

    Wow! The Auralite is such a nice size and shape! Very nice to hold. And you’re right! By shining a flashlight on it, so many colors are illuminated! I also like how this one looks like some of the rough pieces I saw, but I appreciate how it’s so smooth and glossy to the touch. The colors are really cool! I like the spots of red (a lot more than I would’ve liked the red tip I think), and wow, that stripe of gold! It’s also cute how it kind of stands up.

    It blows my mind how fast your packages arrive from Hawaii. They are absolutely AMAZING, Julie! They went to work on me from the moment they were in my hand. The Auralite has such a beautiful heart shape on it, much like the heart-shaped Vesuvianite that I purchased from you last year.
