These beautiful quartz crystals have all been bonded in a high vacuum chamber with different metals such as titanium, gold, niobium, etc. Aura quartz comes in several different colors depending on the combination of elements that was used to bond to it.
When I first started exploring crystal healing I had purchased a few stones. One of these was a Tanzan Aura quartz tumbled stone. This stone has been among the few that have really had an impact on me. Every time I meditated with it this aura quartz stone I could feel it raising my vibration into a state of complete bliss. I never wanted to sit it down! It has been one of the most profound interactions I have ever had with a crystal.
The argument is that the bonding process changes the molecular structure of the quartz so it then has no energetic value. This could very well be the case –BUT- what if it still retains energy? What if this bonding process creates a new/lesser-known version with different energetic properties?
Another important key factor to figure in is if the stone resonates with you- no matter if it’s been altered or not- it will react to you. Just like when picking out any stone- pay special attention to your intuition. If there’s a stone you’re attracted to that is a good indicator that you both are energetically compatible with each other.
In my own personal opinion I think it would be un-wise to not give any value to these beautiful stones. I have felt the energy first hand. In the case of my stone the energy is still there. I wanted to inform others that there are bonded stones that are still active.
