Interesting Fact: Titanium Aura Amethyst is Amethyst that has undergone a laboratory treatment to enhance the colour of the natural crystal.
The process involves placing the Amethyst into a vacuum chamber and reducing the pressure to 2 earth atmospheres. The temperature in the vacuum is then raised to between 800 - 1600 degrees Fahrenheit over a period of some 12 hours, then letting pure Titanium particles into the vacuum chamber whilst putting an electric charge through the Amethyst. This bonds the Titanium to the outside surface of the Crystals and gives it its iridescent coloring.
This process is known as Chemical Vapour Deposition or CVD and, although known about for many years, the using of this process specifically on gemstones and decorative articles was granted a United States patent No 6997014 in 2006 to it's inventors Steven F. Starcke, Ronald H. Kearnes and Keven E. Bennet, and is held by Vision Industries.
Titanium, because this is the metal used in the process, and Aura, because the Titanium deposited on the Amethyst forms a cover or sheath or Aura around the crystal being treated.
