Polished natural Auralite 23 gemstones set in sterling silver earrings. Auralite 23 crystals are about 1.2 to 2 billion years old and only found in Ontario, Canada. It has been said that meteor impacts during this time brought rare metallic ores to the surface of the earth, where they eventually dissolved and were incorporated into the structure of the growing Amethyst Crystal, now called Auralite. If they hadn’t, chances are that the crystals would have remained predominantly amethyst. The crystal itself carries 35 elements, and in each crystal, there is at least 17 of these combined.
