This is a natural Auralite 23 "tooth" which has a particularly vibrant red tip and displays the different mineral zones very clearly within its body.
There is a high percentage of metals in auralite. It is believed that many years ago, meteorites (containing rare metallic ores) crashed into our Earth. Over time, these elements (many of them metals) dissolved and seeped into the earth creating what is now known as auralite. If they had not, chances are that the crystals would have remained predominantly amethyst.
It was originally believed that there were 23 minerals contained within this mineral. Testing by the GIA concluded that there are 35 elements composing 17 different minerals in auralite.

Auralite-23 stimulates higher awareness and telepathic connection with one’s guides and guardian spirits. It offers a direct and immediate link to what is called the “Magic Presence” in esoteric literature —the Higher Self beyond the everyday “I”.
The blessings offered by Auralite-23 include inner purification—the release of patterns of anxiety, resentment, judgment, depression and defeat. This facilitates an uplifting of one’s spirit and an awakening to the potentialities for a new life, all the way into one’s cellular consciousness.
The body itself is awed and made reverent by the clearing of the veils of illusion and the dawning of the presence of one’s Higher Self.
Other effects can include an increase in psychic sensitivity, enhanced insight, disappearance of chronic physical problems, a balanced awakening of kundalini, spontaneous visions of future events, enhanced capacity for soul travel and lucid dreaming, and experiences with Angels.
