Crystal System: Hexagonal/trigonal
Form/Habit: Normally pyramidal terminations, sometimes prismatic

Location: While Amethyst are found in numerous locations around the world, Auralite 23 is found exclusively in Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada.
Mineral Family: Auralite 23 is a unique type of Amethyst found in Canada. Amethyst is the purple variety of Quartz, which is in turn a Silicate mineral, and belongs to the same family as Clear Quartz, Citrine, Rose Quartz, Smoky Quartz and Prasiolite. While Amethyst is the main mineral in Auralite 23, as the name indicates there can be up to 23 distinct minerals found as inclusions within this stone, making it more of a “rock” rather than a mineral. The average Auralite 23 crystal contains anywhere from 4-17 of the following minerals: Ajoite, Bronite, Cacoxenite, Chalcopyrite, Copper, Covellite, Epidote, Geothite, Gilalite, Gold, Hematite, Iron, Lepidocrosite, Limonite, Magnetite, Nickel, Platinum, Pyrite, Pyrolusite, Rutile, Shpalerite, Silver, and Titanite.
Formation: Normally Amethyst is created when liquid magma from a volcanic explosion cools down and transforms into igneous rocks. During this cooling down period, silica acid bubbles shift from being a gas/liquid into a solid compound. The bubble becomes a hollow space in the igneous rock and the silica acid becomes Quartz crystals. Trace particles of iron within the silica acid gives Amethyst its purple color, otherwise the silica acid would transform into Clear Quartz. In the case of Auralite 23, additional traces of elements and minerals were floating in the silica acid and solidify within the Amethyst crystal.
Mining: Auralite 23 Amethyst is mined in exclusively in mines within the Boreal Forest near Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada. Most mines are small operations, the owners often mine the minerals by hand.
Enhancements: Lab-created Amethyst is widely available in the fine gemstone market and is primarily used for jewelry. However, most other Amethysts, including Auralite 23, may be considered fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting, and polishing.
*The mineralogy information is based on pure Amethyst. Depending on the type and location of the minor inclusions, individual stones may differ slightly.
History of Auralite 23 Amethyst
Auralite 23 Amethyst is a new crystal for the metaphysical community and as such was not included in any of the ancient or medieval lapidaries, texts that describe gemstones and their powers. It may be included in some of the newest lapidaries. It’s energy was first widely described by Robert Simmons. Auralite 23 is primarily composed of purple Amethyst, with noticeable inclusions of red Hematite. It often occurs with beautiful chevron patterns.
Auralite 23 is mined near Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, a district which has long produced beautiful Amethyst and Hematite specimens. According to some metaphysical sources, meteorites may have hit the area around Thunder Bay just prior to the Auralite 23’s creation, thus accounting for the unusually high amount of trace metals in the crystals. Unfortunately, this claim is not backed up by any clear scientific evidence.
Intriguingly, Auralite 23 Amethyst crystals have been successfully dated to as far back as 1.2 billion years ago. This makes them them one of the oldest gemstones available on the market! That dating means that these crystals would have formed around the same time that sexual reproduction was first documented in the fossil record, resulting in an evolutionary explosion among living creatures.

These Auralite 23 Amethysts were mined near Thunder Bay, Canada and tumbled in South Africa.
I met the owner of the South African tumbling company at the 2014 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. This company only sells tumbled stones twice a year, once at the Tucson show and later at the Sainte Marie Aux Mines International Mineral and Gem Expo in Provence, France. They offer the largest selection of high quality tumbled stones in the industry and are one of my favorite suppliers.
It would be my pleasure to hand-select a beautiful Auralite 23 Amethyst for you.
This price is for one stone. You can buy a single Auralite 23 Amethyst or several, depending on your individual needs. Each Auralite 23 Amethyst measures at least 1 inch at its longest length and have a unique shape with soft edges. Tumbled stones are natural products and variations are part of their beauty.
The stone I choose for you will be smooth and free of chips and be a beautiful translucent tumbled stone in varying shades of purple, potentially with bits of white, grey, or reddish-brown depending on the mineral composition.

Auralite 23 Amethyst should NOT be used to make direct-infusion “Auralite 23 Amethyst Water” for drinking or bathing, due to the presence of so many different minerals, some of which are toxic to humans. In addition to Amethyst, the main mineral in Auralite 23 Amethyst is Hematite, which will rust if exposed to water for long periods of time.

Auralite 23 Amethyst can be physically cleansed with water or a dusting cloth.
Auralite 23 Amethyst can be energetically cleansed using any method. They will appreciate being soaked in fresh water, set outside to absorb the moonlight, and/or being smudged with smoke or incense. Use your own intuition to determine the best method.
Tumbled and fully smooth Auralite 23 Amethyst can be safely used to make direct-infusion “Auralite 23 Amethyst Water” for drinking or bathing. Before making any direct-infusion elixir ALWAYS check the mineralogical properties of the stone to ensure it is not toxic. Only use fully tumbled stones or natural Quartz points in direct-infusion elixirs, never rough stones. When in doubt, make an indirect-infusion elixir instead.
