Paraiba Aura Quartz Pendant
Paraiba Aura Quartz Pendant
For years now, a few manufacturing establishments in the USA have virtually dominated the Aura Quartz market, keeping to themselves the exact "recipe" for creating these stones, i.e. the exact blend of precious metals used in the coatings, the amount of time the Quartz was treated for and, crucially as it turns out, exactly how, and for how long, the stones were cooled.
The stone in this small pendant, however, is from China !
After years of their own research a few manufacturing centres in China have been able to almost, perhaps even exactly, re-create some of these Aura stones to the high standards of the USA stones. The one thing that feels slightly different is that the Chinese stones are somehow "lighter" in weight and in feel. Clearly they will be using Chinese Quartz and perhaps this is "less dense" than Quartz from the USA?
However, for half the price that this stone would be from the USA, can you live with that ?? !!
This stone is Paraiba Aura Quartz and at first glance it may look similar to Aqua Aura Quartz, this new Paraiba Aura (named after the Paraiba Tourmaline found in Brazil and whose colour it most resembles) is a much more "Neon" blue than the Aqua Aura.
This is gorgeous Quartz that has been treated with Titanium and other precious metals in a process that permanently bonds the precious metals to the Quartz. It will not rub off or wash off.
It has been set in a frame of sterling silver to allow the maximum amount of light to pass through the stone. It is stamped with 925 on the bail.
As this is such a new stone, there's not much information about it yet and so the properties are what we feel it is likely to have based on our knowledge of other types of Aura Quartz.
Size Iincl. bail) approx. 23mm x 10mm
Weight approx. 3grms
