Having Too Many Aura Crystals Can Be Dangerous, Here’s Why

I’ll be the first to say that I absolutely LOVE Aura crystals. They’re beautiful, they’re sparkly, shiny and so very pretty…

and that’s EXACTLY what makes them so freakin dangerous.

But before I go any further – what IS an Aura crystal?

An Aura crystal is a crystal – can be Clear Quartz or any variety of the Quartz family – that undergoes a heat or electrochemical treatment where metal combined with oxygen (usually I’m told it’s Titanium Oxide or a mixture of other metals) are permanently bonded to the surface of the crystal; creating a variety ranging from very intense metallic rainbow colors (Rainbow or Flame Aura) to those ethereal, heavenly looking crystals (Angel or Opal Aura) or to the sparkly yet calming blue color that Aqua Aura is known for. And so much more.

They are very popular and attract people who normally wouldn’t be into crystals.

So back to the dangerous part.

Having way too many Aura crystals in one’s collection can be dangerous for a couple of reasons:

1. You may start to miss the whole point of working with crystals in the first place.

Because they’re so pleasing to the eye, one can end up becoming bedazzled by these Aura crystals, so much that you forget about the healing part.

Some even believe that after undergoing an Aura treatment, the crystal no longer holds that same energy it originally had from Mother Earth.

Most statements are highly debatable so it’s better to see for yourself when making a decision to buy. I’ve said this in previous blog posts – it’s important to listen to yourself; just because others have opinions about something doesn’t mean it’s going to be true for you.

2. You’re acquiring crystals based on appearances instead of energy.

There’s nothing wrong with buying something because you find it to be beautiful, but also consider how it feels? This is tied to the first point I’m trying to make by getting caught up with looks instead of personality (or energy).

I believe that Aura crystals DO serve a purpose with their beauty – their gorgeous coloring can definitely stimulate positive, uplifting vibrations.

Color therapy would be a great example of the positive uses of Aura crystals.

But do they heal?

Again, that’s another debatable question and probably depends on the individual. How do you feel about it?

Let’s put it this way – everything that humans create (manmade) – serves a purpose.

Anything from an amazing work of art, to a stuffed animal has the capacity to stir up an emotion from someone.

Even things that we use everyday and probably take for granted have a very specific purpose – cups to hold the water we drink, a car that takes us from point A to B, or a shell you picked up at a beach to have as a souvenir…

So it is the same with an Aura crystal that reminds us of our divine and biological nature, merging as one.

Conclusion:

Pay attention to your feelings when purchasing an Aura crystal. Are you buying something for artificial reasons or are you feeling something off the crystal? No one is shaming you here, this is just something that entered my mind and wanted to write about.

I wrote this blog post because I also tend to get swept away with wanting to buy all the Aura crystals on Instagram or Etsy. So trust me, I can definitely relate! I literally had to unfollow certain accounts on Instagram in order to not spend any more money.

What Is So Special About the Aura Quartz Crystals?

I didn’t really pay attention to the Aura Crystals – a name that is given to any Quartz crystal whose surface is permanently bonded with natural metal oxides (Silver, Platinum, Titanium, Gold, Cobalt, Niobium, etc. or a combination of these) through a process called Vapor or Vacuum Deposition – until I entered the business side of crystals.

And prior to that, I only had one Angel Aura Quartz crystal and didn’t really get any special vibes from it. It was pretty, but that was it. I also noticed that when I scratched the surface of the crystal with my fingernail the pastel rainbow metallic film came off, which told me that the aura crystal wasn’t of high quality to begin with.😐

Since then I have been somewhat obsessed with Aura Crystals, mostly wanting to know and even witness the process. What can I say, I am a bit of a nerd and obsessed with acquiring knowledge.🤓

Which brings me to the topic of this blog post: What is so special about the Aura Quartz crystals?

As I don’t quite understand my own growing fascination with them and the actual process of how they came to be, here’s my take on what makes them stand out:

+ Their intense metallic, vivid and iridescent colors instantly pulls you in and makes you say “wow”! I’d like to think that Aura Crystals work best through Color Therapy

+ They’re shiny, sparkly and look really cool on a cluster of crystals.

+ They really command your attention somehow because of their striking beauty.

+ The shape of the Quartz specimen – whether it’s a little point, a tumbled stone, a polished self-standing (or flat-bottom) tower, a cluster, a sphere, a geode, a Quartz unicorn carving or a giant, magnificent crystal is truly enhanced by the Aura treatment; you simply CANNOT pass by and ignore it.

I didn’t think they were special until I started to buy them for the shop, until I actually started to see better quality Aura Crystals, until I saw that people really loved them.

 

Another important question: do you feel anything off these Aura Crystals?

This question is highly subjective and will vary from person to person as some people will say that Aura Crystals are manmade, while others will say it’s an alchemical union between nature (crystals) and science (the aura treatment process). But even manmade stuff uses raw materials from the earth so if you think about it, literally EVERYTHING comes from the earth.

I will however, say this: always trust your own intuition. Always trust your own feelings: if you love Aura Quartz, then keep on loving it; if you don’t, then you don’t. It’s that simple.😊

If you’re not feeling anything off of them but still like them, you can always put your Aura crystals on or near a Clear Quartz cluster to cleanse or purify them or put them around other natural crystals. A Selenite slab would also be good for this.
