Also referred to as Opal Aura, Rainbow Aura, Flame Aura or Pearl Aura. It is Quartz crystals that has been enhanced with a combination oftitanium&niobium. Titanium molecules are bonded to the quartz by the natural electrostatic charge of the crystal in a process known as magnetron ionization. The brilliant colour is the result of optical interference effects produced by layers of titanium. Since only electricity is used to deposit the titanium layers & create these colours, very little heat is involved & the integrity of the crystal is maintained.
