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,
