- Auralite or Super 23 isn’t technically a single stone. Instead, the crystal features as many as 23 elements and minerals in its composition, with the average example containing 17.
- The gem may include any or all of the following:
- Since Auralite Super 23 can contain a wide range of elements and minerals, its coloring can encompass nearly any hue imaginable. Additionally, the opacity can vary, as well as the sheen.
Purple is the most common color you’ll find with this gemstone. Additionally, it’s normal to see a chevron strip or crown shape within the gem with reddish tips, causing some to refer to that version of the stone as “Red Cap Amethyst.”
Shades of brown and yellow are typically seen as well as clear versions.
- In the world of gemstones, Auralite Super 23 is a fairly recent discovery. It was first mined in 2007 in one location in Canada, and it hasn’t been found anywhere else since.
- The Auralite Super 23 Red Cap Amethyst crystal is only found in one mine, located in Canada.
Auralite-23 comes from only one crystal gem mine in the world, and that is the mine located in the Boreal Forest north of Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada, also called the "Cave of Wonders".
- It is very likely that the name Auralite was used for this kind of Amethyst was made in favor of Canadian Amethysts and in Honor of the Aurora Borealis.
Several mines in Canada have not adopted the Auralite name to represent their Red-Crowned Amethysts and market their production as "Thunder Bay Amethyst" because of its origin from the Thunder Bay District of Ontario.
- Super Seven and Auralite Super 23 are Sister stones differentiated by groupings of other crystal inclusions, but both are Daughters of Amethyst.
