I have been searching for a specific crystal/mineral and I have not had any luck in finding it. I was wondering if you could help me. The name of the crystal I am looking for is AURAURALITE AULMAURACITE (the magical Stone of Truth).
Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I want to preface this by saying, I love crystals. I work with crystals every day. However, some times, I run across something that screams "misleading" and I will admit this was one of them. Please do not misunderstand, that is just how I feel, and my opinion should not, in any way, deter from the fact that you resonate with it. My opinion is mine only. I do not speak for HealingCrystals.com as a whole.
I did some extensive research on this "new find" which was, from what I can gather, found around 2007 in limited supply under very mysterious (i.e. no way to prove) circumstances. Because this "new find" was only from one source, the prices are ridiculous ($5 a gram with pieces no smaller than 10 grams). According to the website, you can order no less than 10 grams.
My second phase of research is to go to a reputable geological rock site and see what they have to say. Remember, these scientific types are not the most forgiving of the metaphysical community, but the geological information appears to be sound.
"An unofficial name coined by crystal healers for a dark submetallic rock that appears, from photographs, to contain Hematite. They claim it is from somewhere in the Rocky Mountains, but originated from another planet. In fact, they claim, it's not a rock, it's an advanced alien life form that can be harmed by synthetic materials (e.g. plastic). It is said to give off a sparkling powder (sounds very much like micaceous Hematite)."
My next point of research was in the naming of this piece. Someone, whose links you can see below, simply made up the name. It is not a geologically recognized name in any Rock Guide or reference that I can find. I sent an email to these folks, asking for a geological report or other data to confirm the make up of this rock.
Here is their response:
It sounds like you are really into geology. :o)
We would suggest that you do your own testing as our source has the original assay. We know there was a high % of iron and traces of every other mineral. And we know it did not originate from this planet and has some very unique qualities.
If this rock is a real piece, approval through the IMA and registration of the name is part of the process. Most are more than willing to supply the geological report, when requested. These folks chose not to. In fact, they suggested I BUY a piece ($50.00 minimum) and pay to get my own report done (they are very expensive $80.00 and up).
I only provide this extensive information so that you can make up your own mind. If you are like me, you like to have all of the facts before purchasing a piece such as this :)
With that being said, the only website I could find was from the person who made up the name and is selling the hematite included rock.
If you do decide to purchase a piece, I would love to hear your feedback! I am always open to others experiences with their crystals :)
with love and crystal blessings,
