When you enter your Reiki healer’s place of business and select a stone to hold during your session, you might immediately be drawn to a beautiful Angel Aura Quartz. These stones, while not natural in occurrence, radiate light and have the ability to mesmerize and enchant even the coldest souls.
Angel Aura Quartz is the result of a practice of fusing precious metals to crystals to achieve a more decorative effect. The result is a stone that bears striking beauty and transformative powers to deeply connect you with the spiritual realm.
Origins of Angel Aura Quartz
While most of the crystals you use in your practice are naturally occurring, Angel Aura Quartz has actually been transformed from its original state to something even more powerful. The process of chemical vapor deposition, or “CVD,” was first developed in the early 19th century.
How Angel Aura Quartz Is Made
Originally used for the construction of lamp filaments, CVD then became a popular method for coating hard metal tools so that they lasted longer and were more resistant to rust. It wasn’t until the 1970s that the process of CVD was tested on natural minerals.
Scientists working at the University of Technology in Vienna used the CVD method to bind metals to crystals to form new crystalline solids. How does the process work?
A naturally occurring crystal, usually Clear Quartz, is placed in a vacuum with fibers of precious metal. These metals can be gold, silver, copper, titanium, or niobium. Angel Aura Quartz is created with a combination of titanium and niobium.
Once the crystals are placed in the vacuum with the metals, they are placed under extreme heat. Heat levels reach approximately 1600℉. The atoms from the titanium and niobium then fuse to the surface of the Clear Quartz in the chamber. The result is the beautiful iridescent stone we know as Angel Aura Quartz.
Determining Real From Artificial Angel Aura Quartz
Even though Angel Aura Quartz isn’t naturally occurring, it undergoes an important transformative process that allows metals to bind to its surface. This process allows it to be an even more powerful stone. As such, you’ll want to avoid counterfeits.
With the rise in interest of Angel Aura Quartz (and other CVD crystals), there has also been a rise in the creation of knock-offs. These are usually formed from glass or are laboratory-made Quartz crystals that have been painted or coated with a spray-on color.
You can tell a true Angel Aura Quartz by its brilliance and luster. These stones are generally more iridescent and can even appear blue. They are shinier and refract more light than artificial stones.
Angel Aura Quartz is usually formed from Clear Quartz, which is one of the most common minerals found in the earth’s crust. There are large mines located in Brazil and in the U.S. One of the most popular locations for mining Quartz in the U.S. is found in Arkansas.
Properties of Angel Aura Quartz
Angel Aura Quartz has both physical and metaphysical properties that are important to learn before you add Angel Aura Quartz to your collection.
Physical Properties of Angel Aura Quartz
CVD treated Quartz, like angel aura, are arguably some of the most beautiful stones in the world of crystals and minerals. Because these crystals are formed from clear Quartz, they have a natural Mohs Hardness of 7-7.5, making them incredibly durable and perfect for setting in jewelry, using in your home and office, and during your meditations.
Other CVD Quartz colors include flame, rainbow, and opal. Some deep black obsidians may even be CVD-treated Quartz and not true obsidian.
Metaphysical Properties of Angel Aura Quartz
If you’re a bit skeptical of how a stone produced in a lab can have true metaphysical properties, that is completely normal. However, it’s important to understand that these crystals are actually extremely powerful for two reasons:
Transformative process. Anytime you expose a natural element to fire, heat, or water, it undergoes a transformative process that heightens its natural metaphysical properties and can make it even more powerful than it was in its original state.
Transformation of these stones also helps them guide us in our own personal transformation and foster needed changes.
- Additional Elements. When combined with the precious metals during the CVD heating process, these crystals take on the combined power of the original crystal element and the metals that are bound with it. The result is a stone twice as powerful as the origins.
Angel Aura Quartz’s strength lies in its ability to connect you to others and to the spirit realm. By improving your meditative state during mediations, it helps you become a willing vessel that can easily receive information from your spiritual guides and from the universe as a whole.
Angel Aura Quartz is also able to connect you to the angelic realm and strengthen your own aura, making it more accessible for spiritual beings to access you and connect with you.
A highly vibrational stone, some users who are especially sensitive can feel the warmth and vibration of the stone upon touch. If you can’t, don’t worry. You can still access the healing and spiritual powers of this stone.
Angel Aura Quartz Meaning
The meaning of Angel Aura Quartz is divine connection and spiritual alignment. No other stone possesses the power of Angel Aura Quartz to help you connect to the cosmos and deeply connect with yourself.
Often used to strengthen psychic ability and enhance communion with spiritual guides, Angel Aura Quartz helps repair broken connections and communication.
Angel Aura Quartz also means restoration of faith and hope, renewing your ability to believe in the greater good, think positively, and trust the universe to guide you on the best possible paths.
Angel Aura Quartz also means the realization of beauty. On our journey, we sometimes become jaded, resentful, or callous to the beauty in ourselves, others, and even in nature. Angel Aura Quartz causes the scales to fall from our eyes so we can see the light, beauty, and energy in the world around us and explore the beauty within.
Angel Aura Quartz and Your Chakras
The alignment of crystals and Chakras helps keep you balanced and encourages the proper flow of energy both within your body and the universe. Angel Aura Quartz is a magnificent stone for deeply cleansing and balancing all your Chakras. You’ll likely find Angel Aura Quartz in your Reiki professional’s room.
Because Angel Aura Quartz began as clear Quartz, a known healing stone, it is incredibly efficient in cleansing the Chakras and aura of negative energy. It is especially beneficial for the Throat, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras.
Throat Chakra connection. When you feel your communication with others is difficult or limited, Angel Aura Quartz can help release your tongue and give you the ability to speak your truth lovingly and without judgement.
Aquamarine is an ideal companion stone to use along with Angel Aura Quartz if you are working on clearing and opening the Throat Chakra. Try using the stones together during your meditation and yoga practice.
Third Eye Chakra connection. The Angel Aura Quartz helps you keep your third eye open, which can be difficult if you are a person who relies solely on the reason and evidence you can see with your visual eyes.
Angel Aura Quartz is a stone of intuition, which can help strengthen your own reliance on your intuition and trust your decisions with absolute resolution, even when physical evidence hasn’t yet been manifested.
Angel Aura Quartz helps you connect deeply with premonition. Fluorite is a handy companion stone for Third Eye Chakra work. Keeping these two stones near your body can help you keep a more open mind.
Crown Chakra connection. Your Crown Chakra, located above the crown of your head, outside of your body, controls your ability to achieve a higher state of consciousness and also keeps you connected to the spirit realm.
Often referred to as your spiritual umbilical cord, the Crown Chakra is stimulated by Angel Aura Quartz because of its strong connection to the spirit realm. When you practice Crown Chakra work, a wonderful accompanying stone is Lepidolite. Use these two stones together to help achieve a higher state of spirituality.
Remember, Angel Aura Quartz helps cleanse and balance all the Chakras, not just the Throat, Third Eye, and Crown. Although these special connections exist, it’s still a great decision to use this stone for balancing the remainder of your Chakras.

Uses of Angel Aura Quartz
You can use Angel Aura Quartz much like you use other varieties of Quartz. It’s a very good stone to use in your mediations and ceremonies and in your home and office.
Meditations and Ceremonies
Using Angel Aura Quartz in your meditations and ceremonies is easy. Even though the stone has a very high vibration, it is still considered a cool stone and is safe to use directly on your body for healing and Chakra balance.
You can use Angel Aura Quartz by holding pieces of the stone as you meditate or placing them on your body when you are in shavasana pose. Simply keeping the crystals in the same space where you regularly meditate or practice can make your connection to the spirit realm deeper.
Home and Work
Angel Aura Quartz is used in the practice of Feng Shui to promote balance, health, and to help ground the spirit. It is thought to work best when placed in the northeast corner of your rooms.
Angel Aura Quartz also inspires knowledge, wisdom, and clarity of thought. Using Angel Aura Quartz in your office or in areas of your home where you typically make large decisions can help keep you grounded and focused.
Placing a piece of Angel Aura Quartz under your pillow or near your bed can inspire lucid dreams that reveal more about your inner self, past lives, and connection to your spiritual guides. It also enhances a good night of sleep.
Because Angel Aura Quartz helps you see beauty and encourages love, keeping it in your home can fill your home with light and love, and help you feel love for others and for yourself.
Experienced healers know that Angel Aura Quartz is an essential for their practice. A wonderful accessory stone, it helps keep the spiritual realm present and close during all forms of spiritual and Chakra energy work.
It’s also beneficial to help healers avoid absorbing negative energy from their clients, which allows them to keep their energy renewed and restored. It also offers safety and light during psychic contact and during scrying.
Wearing Angel Aura Quartz on your body helps keep you centered in light and love. It can also help you feel deeply connected to the spiritual realm and help you stay more strongly connected to your spiritual guide. However, some users may feel so deeply connected to the spiritual realm that they find it distracting to wear Angel Aura Quartz while at work.
Cleansing and Recharging Angel Aura Quartz
Angel Aura Quartz is likely a stone you’ll have in heavy rotation, so don’t forget that it needs to be cleansed and recharged regularly.
You can cleanse Angel Aura Quartz like you clean clear crystal Quartz. The heat used to bond the metals to your crystal ensures they won’t rub off or transfer.
You can use tap water, mineral water, or sea water to cleanse your Angel Aura Quartz. Simply hold your crystal under running water for several seconds while holding a cleansing intention in your mind.
Alternatively, you can place your crystal in a shallow bowl of water and allow it to soak overnight. Pat it dry with a microfiber towel when you have finished cleaning it.
If you’ve got several Angel Aura Quartz crystals you’d like to cleanse at once, using sound to cleanse them may be a better option than using water.
Using music, your own voice, or an instrument, allow sound waves to wash over your crystals while you recite a cleansing intention or hold one in your mind.
If you have large pieces of Clear Quartz, they work brilliantly to cleanse your Angel Aura Quartz. Angel Aura Quartz is usually found in smaller pieces, so they can fit nicely inside a larger piece of Quartz. Leave your smaller Angel Aura Quartz pieces inside larger pieces of Clear Quartz overnight to allow the Clear Quartz to draw out impurities.
One of the safest and easiest ways to recharge practically any crystal, including Angel Aura Quartz, is by exposing them to lunar energy. Lunar energy soaks deeply into your crystals and charges them, renewing their healing energies and driving out negativity.
You may think it’s a good idea to leave your crystals in the sun for solar energy recharging, but this can be damaging to many crystals and minerals. It can cause them to overheat and also cause fading, so it’s best to never leave them in direct sunlight. If you want to channel solar energy, leave them near a window so they get plenty of light, but not direct sunlight.
Angel Aura Quartz Cleansing Tips and Tricks
Salt isn’t recommended as a viable method for cleansing Angel Aura Quartz. Even though this stone is very hard and durable, it’s possible that large granules of salt could scratch the CVD surface and damage the beauty and brilliance of your stone.
If you are cleansing a piece of Angel Aura Quartz that has been set in jewelry, you’ll want to check with the manufacturer to ensure the other pieces of your jewelry are safe for the cleansing technique you have selected. Some metals shouldn’t be exposed to water, for instance.
It’s safe to assume you can sound cleanse any piece of jewelry.
Reach the Spiritual Realm With Angel Aura Quartz
The spiritual realm and your spiritual guides are within your reach when you incorporate the use of Angel Aura Quartz into your practice. You can find the true beauty and peace within your own body and mind and connect deeply to the beauty and peace of others with this gleaming, iridescent stone.
