Ruby Aura is the end result of a process which uses intense heat to infuse platinum, gold and silver to natural quartz from Brazil. The atoms fuse to the crystal's surface, which gives it an opalescent metallic sheen. While there is no ruby in this process, energetically it acts much the same way. Ruby Aura Quartz brings passion and vitality and activates the wisdom of the heart. It is thought to protect against aggression and violence and helps heal the effects of physical abuse.
