Aqua Aura is one of the most unusual and rare mineral specimens as it is created with the help of the rare metal gold. To start, the highest grade quartz crystals are selected. These are then treated with gold. This treatment is done via an electrostatic process whereby the crystals are put into a vacuum and charged opposite the gold. Heat is applied. The gold is then put into the vacuum and it "clings" to the crystals. The crystals are then turned over and the process is repeated, so that all areas of the crystals are covered. The gold when charged and treated in a vacuum environment will combine with the quartz and changes the color of the quartz to a magnificent color of blue.
