Auralite-23, also known as Red Cap Amethyst, is a very rare blend of crystals and one of Earth’s oldest minerals; estimated to have formed around 1.2 - 1.5 billion years ago. The only locality in existence is the place of its initial discovery, north of Lake Superior in Ontario, Canada. Auralite-23 was only recently discovered and pushed onto the mineral market within the last 20 years, making it one of the newest and fastest selling crystals in the 21st century so far. The name is derived from the “23” minerals that are contained within the chemical composition of the stone (the main being an Amethyst base with inclusions within). We always preface the fact that although 23 minerals have been found in some crystals from this mine, it does not mean that ALL crystals from this mine automatically contain them all. This does not take away from the unique and limitless energy one can channel when working with this piece in a spiritual setting. Most of the 23 minerals can only be seen under a microscope, with a few dominate crystals forging the appearance of this diverse stone (Amethyst, Quartz, and Hematite).The 23 minerals within Auralite 23 (not counting the “base” mineral Amethyst) Credit: Crystal Council
