Word: Quartz (Aura)
Aura - late Middle English (originally denoting a gentle breeze): via Latin from Greek, ‘breeze, breath.’ Current senses date from the 18th century.
Quartz - mid 18th century: from German Quarz, from Polish dialect kwardy, corresponding to standard Polish twardy ‘hard.’
Aura quartz is quartz that has been enhanced with a combination of titanium and niobium.
Metal-coated crystals are natural crystals, such as quartz, whose surface has been coated with metal to give them an iridescent metallic sheen. Crystals treated this way are used as gemstones and for other decorative purposes. Possible coatings include gold (resulting in a stone called aqua aura), indium, titanium, niobium and copper. Other names for crystals treated so include; angel aura, flame aura, opal aura or rainbow quartz.
