Our aura enhancement is a proprietary Dichroic process containing 15 micro thin layers of colloidal gold and silver particles that causes an array of colors depending on lighting and different angles. Modern day dichroic was used primary for NASA optics, but was used as early as the 4th century A.D. in decorative ornaments in Europe
We are proud to offer the absolute best aura enhancement in the market today. Pairing our aura enhancement with only top-quality hand-selected, high-grade crystals – is what we do!

Gems and minerals are often enhanced to make the color more appealing. Most faceted gemstones on the market today have been enhanced in some way, either chemically, by heating, using radiation or with radioactive rays or fracture filling.
The popularity of enhanced crystals and gems have increased, and there is a wide variety of color enhanced crystals available today, that were not available ten years ago. In the last few years the demand for these enhanced crystals quickly outgrew the supply, and the race to supply the demand also supplied plenty of misconceptions and a wide-spread misunderstanding about what exactly an ‘Aura’ crystal is, and/or how it was ‘coated’.
The Aura crystals offered at Far Arden Essentials are not man made. They are all natural material that is derived from Earth that have undergone a specific process to create the Aura rainbow iridescence. The process is not done in a 'lab’; however, microscopic layers of natural metals are bonded to its surface using complex, scientifically precise, and expensive man-made equipment and ingenuity.
There are three enhancement processes being used on crystals in today’s market. Each of these individual methods of enhancement are its own unique process.
In no particular order, here are the three most common processes of enhancement that are responsible for the majority of the Aura Crystals available on the market today:
Aqua Aura process - Microscopic pieces of metal such as Gold, Indium, and the like, are bonded in a high heat environment to crystals. This is one of the first Aura processes that appeared in the market.
ReactiveSpattering process - A thin film deposition on a surface is achieved by coating substrates with metals, nitrides, and the like.
Dichroic process - Multiple ultra-thin layers of different metals, oxides of metals and quartz silica vaporized by an electron beam. In an attempt to imitate these three processes the process of dipping was created, which is the lowest quality and not ‘green’ or ethically done. Far Arden Essentials chooses not to sell or endorse anything that has been enhanced using this process:
Dipping process - Adding a color agent (food coloring or other unknown sources) to a glossy synthetic polymer (Polyurethane, Lacquer, etc.) and applying it to the crystal and letting it dry.
Far Arden Essentials’ Aura crystals are created using an exclusive proprietary aura enhancement process. Our enhancement process is a modified version of #3. It is trade secret in which it is created and is the only one in existence. Our process uses no radiation or chemicals.
