Tanzine Aura Quartz, also called Indigo, Tanzan or Tanzanite Aura, begins with rock quartz and a spectacular transformation when pure elements of 24k gold, niobium and the rare element indium are ionized inside a temperature controlled nitrogen atmosphere vacuum chamber. The pure metals molecularly fuse with the quartz, may alter the original matrix strength and displays beautiful changing iridescent hues in various lighting. We recommend to always gently handle and care for any aura'd crystal or cluster.
***Photography of Shop Items*** Our intent and goal is to photo items using natural bright sunlight to showcase their natural beauty. We strive for the photography to represent the actual colors and hues. Various electronic viewing platforms and/or casual indoor lighting may or may not offer the same colors, hues and brilliance.
We appreciate Etsy's photo zoom to assist with viewing the smallest details. Keep in mind, zooming greatly enlarges very tiny and miniature crystals, special features and character marks.
REMEMBER~ All natural non-polished quartz has endured nature and man made stresses over millions of years! Character markings on surfaces, edges and unique matrix changes are not considered damage, may or may not be present and represents the crystal's signature appearance and journey.
***Packaging/Shipping*** Our high quality quartz crystals are cushioned and boxed for USPS transit.
We greatly appreciate your crystal business and supporting our Etsy Shop, Thank You!
